That picture simply gives me chills.
As a kid, the most exciting moment of any Yankee game was watching Mickey walk to the on deck circle. There was always some small noise from those that could see inside the Yankee dugout, who saw Mickey get up and grab a bat. Then rest of us wondered, until Mick's head popped out of the dugout and he took his first steps onto the field.

I really feel more then anyone else, even the Babe, Mickey WAS baseball. It's that simple.
