'Baseball Sluggers' stamps, postal cards, hit grand slam at Yankee Stadium

July 15th, 2006

Four big bats: Mickey Mantle, Roy Campanella, Hank Greenberg and Mel Ott were immortalized on postage at Yankee Stadium's home plate today as the Postmaster General, joined by the Hall of Famers' family members, dedicated the "Baseball Sluggers" commemorative stamps and stamped postal cards. The ceremony took place before a sellout crowd of more than 54 thousand prior to the opening pitch of the New York Yankees-Chicago White Sox game.
