On August 11, 1973 — During the Old Timers’ Game played at Yankee Stadium, Mickey Mantle homers off his old teammate and best buddy, Whitey Ford. After launching a shot that lands foul in the upper deck, the slugger sends the southpaw’s next pitch over the fence, much to the delight of the large crowd gathered for the festivities.
