He led baseball in pretty much everything, with a slash line of .353/.454/.705 and a 1.169 OPS. He hit 52 homers and drove in 130 runs while inventing and even glamorizing the epic swing and miss.Mantle also bunted 20 times in ’56. Safe on a dozen, too.The reason for bringing this up is that if bunting was good enough for the Mick, it should be good enough for the Rangers.Now, I know what you’re thinking:...
