1957 was a great year for New York Yankee star Mickey Mantle. He won the MVP award and his batting average was .365. For people not familiar with baseball, that batting average is outstanding. To look at it in another mathematical way, it meant that for every 10 times at bat, he made a hit more than 3 out of 10 times. In any given 9 inning game, his team could almost count on Mickey getting a hit, on average once a game. This is an approximation.
In the previous game he hurt his shoulder diving into second base on a pickoff attempt. Milwaukee infielder Red Schoendeinst had to dive for the ball and he fell on Mantle's shoulder. Mickey completed the game but couldnt bat or field and was scratched for game five., The Braves won 1-0 and went on to win the series.
September 25, 1968 Game 161Mickey Mantle collected his last hit on September 25, 1968. He hit a single in the bottom of the first inning of game 161, off opposing Cleveland Indians pitcher Luis Tiant.

By the time he was in third grade, his father had taught him to hit as a lefty. From that point on Mantle was a switch hitter, meaning he could bat from either side of home plate.
