USC-New York Yankees Video

Here’s some highlights of the 1951 game between USC and the New York Yankees, which drew a huge crowd to Bovard Field.

It features Phil Rizzuto, Hank Workman, Joe Dimaggio, Mickey Mantle, USC pitcher Tom Lovrich and USC center fielder Tom Riach.

There’s no mention of Mantle’s supposed-650-foot home run. One of the outfield fence markers says 439 feet.
