Teamwork


 
 
 
               Former pitcher, Bob Turley tells a story about Hank Bauer and Mickey Mantle playing in the outfield one day at Yankee Stadium.  Hank was in right and Mantle in center.  Harvey Kuenn of the Detroit Tigers hits a line drive to right centerfield between the two players.  Both take off after the ball with Hank Bauer being a bit closer.  But Bauer realizes that he can not get to the baseball with his gloved left-hand so at the last minute he reaches out with his bare right hand and deflected the ball towards the on coming Mantle.  Mickey reaches out and catches the ball on the dead run for the third out.  Then they both turn and run to the dugout in unison with no facial expression whatsoever.  The fans in the stands are going crazy and as they get to the dugout, Mantle says with a straight face, “That’s a play we’ve been working on.”  Their teammates almost collapse in laughter.
