Mickey Mantle’s Last Game Notes

July 26, 2020

What turned out to be the great player, Mickey Mantle’s last major league game, was played on Saturday September 28, 1968 at Boston’s Fenway Park.

Mantle popped out to the Red Sox shortstop Rico Petrocelli in the top of the first inning and was replaced at his announced position first base by Andy Kosco in the bottom of the first inning.

Mickey did not play in the season finale the next day and announced his retirement in spring training in March 1969.
