Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris . 'I was so excited, I hit Mickey with a fastball in the ass,' laughed Vern , who recalled the game ( May 17, 1964 ) not long ago. In six short years, Vern had jumped from Memorial Field to pitching at Yankee Stadium, an enormous accomplishment especially for a Canadian back then." - Staff Writer Fred MacDonald in The Guardian (05/28/2016, FIDDLER'S FACTS: Handrahan went from Memorial Field to Yankee Stadium , Source )
