Atlantic City, 1983

In April, 1983, I went to Atlantic City to interview my hero, Mickey Mantle. I was a reporter for the Washington Post. He was newly banished from baseball and newly appointed the hotel’s Director of Sports Promotions. My weekend with The Mick changed my life and was the catalyst for this book.  Photos by Jane Leavy.
