Whitey Ford: (Sotto voce, to Mickey Mantle) This guy died and nobody told him. Commissioner Ford Frick: As I stand here this afternoon, it is impossible not to think of the Babe; not to feel his presence here even now. He was more than a ball player. He was everything that is special about this game. He was everything that is special about America. Mickey Mantle: (Sotto voce, to Whitey) I bet I got more pussy than he did.
