Turns out that Joe DiMaggio wasn't the only New York Yankee to get a larger than life Hollywood actress. According to a new biography about Doris Day, in 1962 a married Mickey Mantle visited the set of the film That Touch Of Mink starring a married Doris Day. He was on the set because he and some of the other Yankees were doing a cameo. Apparently the pair hit it off and had an affair that lasted throughout the filming. Although Mantle was known as a guy who would f**k anyone, anytime and anywhere and even had a private suite he had for just that purpose, apparently he bragged to all his friends not just about having sex with her, but that she was the best f**k he had ever had.
Who knew Doris Day had it in her. Well apparently Mickey did. Doris Day's representatives declined to comment. What? You mean they didn't want to call up the 84 year old and ask her if she had sex with Mickey Mantle and if she was as good as the book and Mickey claims? I actually bet Doris probably would like to comment but her representatives are too scared to ask her and hope that she just doesn't even find out about the book.
I always did think that Doris Day was a hottie. Mickey Mantle, not so much. She could have done better.
