Mantle, Ford enter Shrine

THE 'OL PERFESSOR, Casey Stengel, manager of the great New York Yankee teams of the 1950's confers with a cot
guys that made him look good many times, Whitey Ford and Mickey Mantle, as the two were inducted into the Hall of
at Cooperstown, N.Y. yesterday.

-A country boy who went to
the big city to play baseball re-
turned to a quiet village yester-
day to be enshrined in the Mall
of Fame.
As a yosngster in Commerce,
Okla., Mickey Mantle wore uni-
forms his mother made, hit
home runs that reached amaz-
ing proportions and became
"simply one of the greatest
players this game has ever
known," according to Commis-
sioner Bowie Kuhn.
Mantle joined New York
Yankees teammate and pitch-
ing great Whitey Ford, vet-
eran umpire Jocko Conlan
and Negro Leagues star
James "Cool Papa" Bell in
celebrating the induction.
Two other players, "Sunny
Jim" Bottomley and Sam
Thompson, were honored post-
"This is the proudest day of
my life," Mantle said, recalling
journeys to Whitebird, Okla.,
Baxter Springs, Kan., and Jop-
lin, Mo., before joining the Yan-
kees in 1951 and going on to
"Myonly regret is that my
dad couldn't be here. He
would have gotten a big kick
out of this," he said.
It was Mantle's father, who
had named him after former
c a tc h e r Mickey Cochrane,
taught his son t6 switch hit,
and sharpened the skills that
carried Mantle to greatness.
Mutt Mantle didn't live to see
his son hit 534 homers, drive in
1,509 runs, play in 20 All-Star
games or set a handful of
world series records.
But Ford did - while setting
all kinds of records himself.
The cagey left - hander and
Mantle were the brightest stars
of New York clubs in the 1950s
and 60s.
Ford's winning percentage of
.690 still stands as the best
among pitchers with more than
200 career decisions.
