The Rangers won a playoff game the night before.
The Knicks are playing later tonight.
The topic of Mike Francesa’s radio show Tuesday? Naturally whether or not Mickey Mantle might have corked his bat.
Eventually, after taking a bunch of calls on the subject, Francesa read the press release from the memorabilia company selling the alleged corked bat and New York’s No. 1 finally loses his cool, saying there’s never been rumors Mantle doctored his bat. (Here it is in GIF form.)
A few minutes later Mantle’s former teammate with the Yankees Bobby Richardson called into the show to confirm he never saw The Mick cork his bat either.
