Interesting 1957 showing the competitive fire of Mickey Mantle as he throws his bat in frustration after popping out to first base during spring training. He did not just throw his bat, he tossed it higher than the roof of the stadium and this picture captures the event quite well with an artist having added a line to show the flight of the ash! Condition is nice and this is the only example of this photo we have ever seen.
