This Day In New York Yankees History 10/4

On this day in 1953 Mickey Mantle became only the fourth Yankees player to hit a grand slam in their history joining Gil McDougald in 1951, Elmer Smith in 1920, and Tony Lazzeri in 1936.

On this day in 1958 the Yankees Hank Bauer would have a 3 for 4 day at the plate increasing his World Series hitting streak to 17 games, a new major league record. Bauer would head to the Fall Classic in 196-1958.
