MLB – 1960s – Special Preview Of The Stars Of The Decade – Mantle + Mays + Gibson + McClain + McCovey + Spahn + Brock Et Al

Our Bone Daddy, the original Sportsphile….who was responsible for originally recording our incredible 2300 hour vintage video library here at ImaSportsphile….was a teenager who grew up loving and playing baseball in West Texas during the decade of the 1960’s….and in his words, “played many whiffle ball games in the back yard” throughout the entire decade….while pretending to be Mickey Mantle, Willie Mays, Hank Aaron and/or Willie McCovey while at bat…..and pretending to be Bob Gibson, Juan Marichal and/or Warren Spahn while pitching. 

This video brings back so many fond memories of the Major League Baseball heroes of the decade….which was a time (decade) when baseball was the most popular sport in America….and every sports fan knew the stats of The Mick, The Say Hey Kid, Gibby, Mr Sunshine, Stretch or Hammerin Hank….long before they ever picked up a whiffle ball bat or ball. 

Simply put, to any and all boys growing up during the decade of the 1960’s….this video seen herewith brings back not just memories of the many legendary players of the decade….but also, of hitting the last homerun in the bottom of the last inning….on the last pitch before lights out at the whiffle ball game just before bedtime in West Texas during the decade of the 1960’s.
