During the game Mickey Mantle hit two homers, one right handed, and one left handed into a river well past the ballpark's fences. Greenwade wanted to sign Mickey on the spot but, upon finding out that he was only sixteen and still in high school, told him he would come back to sign him with the Yankees on his graduation day in 1949.

On April 17, 1951 the 19 year old Mickey Mantle broke into the big leagues with the New York Yankees.
