9. Mantle Lifts Yanks To World Series Win

Game 7 of the 1952 World Series was tied up at two apiece until Mickey Mantle stepped up to the plate in the top of the sixth.

Facing Joe Black, the Yankees’ legend tattooed the game-winning home run to right-center and padded the lead with a RBI single in the seventh to lift his team to its fourth-straight World Series win.

To add icing to the cake, it was the franchise’s second consecutive title win over the Brooklyn Dodgers and it was all thanks to Mantle’s .345 batting average and two homers.
