"I do worry about the young people who have looked up to me. And I appeal to them: the best time not to do drugs or alcohol is the first time. Don't end up over the hill before you even start to climb it." Mickey Mantle

"If you had a bad day, Mickey would wait for you in the clubhouse, and he'd tap you on the shoulder and invite you out to dinner. That's all you needed. The next day you'd go out and get four hits." Johnny Blanchard

"He was as fast as a deer and was, at 18 years old, already hitting balls an enormous distance." Hank Bauer

"He was a winner. I feel he was the greatest player I've ever played with." Moose Skowron
