I used to have a neighbor that pitched minor league ball back in the late 40s and early 50s and he claims he pitched to Mickey Mantle or was it Roger Maris. Probably Maris as Maris was from the central part (ND) of the country.
I think he said he actually struck him out, but my Lupron memory won't swear to it.
Unfortunately records on those teams are hard to come by. Teams played in western Missouri and eastern Kansas
