Mickey Mantle hit # 536 on this day in 1968.   Jim Lonborg of Boston was the pitcher.   It was # 18 of the season and at Fenway Park.

Mantle retired at the end of the season.   His last game at Yankee Stadium came on September 25th.   The Yankees did not formally say goodbye until 1969 when Mick retired.
