Jane Leavy wrote the definitive Mickey Mantle biography. She grew up close to Yankee Stadium and idolized The Mick. She earned the last word. Leavy documented his tape measure home runs and chronicled in detail every injury that Mantle suffered in his 18 years as a Yankee. She left no doubt that he was better than Mays, that with good health he would have been the greatest player of all time. Leavy recounted her interview with him and how his hand was making its way up her thigh when he passed out drunk. Mantle had many extramarital affairs. He lived with Greer Johnson, his business manager, the last years of his life although he and Merlyn never divorced. Mantle died on August 13, 1995. According to Leavy, he was buried in pinstripes.
