Quotable!
"After the game, Jackie Robinson came into our clubhouse and shook my hand. He said, "You're a helluva ballplayer and you've got a great future." I thought that was a classy gesture, one I wasn't then capable of making. I was a bad loser. What meant even more was what Jackie told the press: "Mantle beat us. He was the difference between the two teams. They didn't miss Dimaggio." I have to admit, I became a Jackie Robinson fan on the spot. And when I think of that world Series, his gesture is what comes to mind. Here was a player who had without doubt suffered more abuse and more taunts and more hatred than any player in the history of the game. And he had made a special effort to compliment and encourage a young white kid from Oklahoma."
--Mickey Mantle
