Had read that the reason Mantle's knees gave out was that he never would do pregame warm ups or couldn't do them.
He would just go out there and hit the hell out of the ball.
Idolized him and Yogi Berra way back in the day.
Falstaff Game of the Week with Dizzy Dean, LOL.

Really?

I've read that Mantle tripped over a drainage pipe in the outfield that didn't have the cap on.

Twisted his knee fierce.

Was never the same after that.
