Mickey Mantle Was a Cheater?

by Storm Avery

For years there have been rumors that baseball legend Mickey Mantle used corked bats to help him during the last part of his career.  Now, there's finally evidence.

The late Mickey Mantle is one of the greatest Yankees of all time and may have used a cork bat, according to an authentication expert. 

One of Mickey Mantle's bats from 1964 was X Ray-ed and showed that the bat was hollowed out.  The bat is going up for auction later this month.  The opening bid is $5,000. 

Does this change your opinion of The Mick?
