‘Mickey Mantle Day’ Tonight in Tulsa

The Double-A Tulsa Drillers (Texas League) will pay tribute Saturday night to Oklahoman and baseball great Mickey Mantle by giving away replica jerseys modeled after the team’s new alternate jersey.  On a related note, the Drillers broke their single-game attendance record on Friday night with 8,707.  Will Mickey put them over the top again tonight?
