“Maris & Mantle” review and chat with the author

“Maris & Mantle: Two Yankees, Baseball Immortality, and the Age of Camelot” is a brand-new book by Tony Castro from Triumph Books. As one could surmise, it tells the story of the two disparate sluggers from their respective youths, their rise through the ranks, their unforgettable record-breaking season in 1961, and the wear and tear that eventually brought an end to their careers.

The story of Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris is one known to Yankees fans throughout the world. As a Yankee fan of over four decades who writes about the Yankees, I certainly thought that I knew it well.
