Re: Then there was another player from Ok

He on the Triple Crown in '56 including 56 home runs and got a nice raise - his '57 numbers fell 34 home runs - winning MVPs both years - his contract arrived with a $10,000 decrease for '58 - when he refused to sign it, Dan Topping told him to report to ST -Mickey Mantle headed to FL but management agreed to only cut his salary by $5,000/ Of course, this was all pre-Curt Flood and FA. Thngs were so much simpler back then - a handshake could get a deal done between owner & player without an agent. Times have changed from the year-to-year contracts.
