The scrappy Go-Go Sox of 1959 , a team that broke a forty-year pennant drought in Chicago's South Side, was the subject of Go-Go to Glory: The 1959 Chicago White Sox (Don Zminda, ACTA Publications, 02/20/2009), a great reference book that included this excerpt, "Two hitters he (Rudy Arias) feared the most were Ted Williams and Mickey Mantle . As he remembers, when pitching to Mantle in a Spring Training game he ran the count to 2 and 1, followed by a second strike with the count now at 2 and 2. The catcher asked for a changeup and Mickey took a mighty swing. According to Arias, who laughs as he tells the story, 'That ball almost hit the sun.'"
