Mickey Mantle never really 'tried out' for the Yankees. He was playing with a semi-pro team called the Baxter Springs Whiz Kids when a scout for the Yankees came to a game to watch one of his teammates. During the game Mantle hit two home runs, one righthanded and one lefthanded. The scout wanted to sign him immediately but couldn't because Mantle was only 16 years old.
