re: Proof that Mickey Mantle corked his bats (Posted on 5/3/13 at 11:48 pm to massiveattack)
quote: During our examination of the bat, we noticed a circular area .75 inches wide in the center of the top barrel. The finish in the area has also been touched up to mask the circular area. Alterations of this nature indicate the barrel has been drilled and filled with cork….we had the barrel x-rayed and (it) confirms that the barrel has been drilled and filled with cork."
