Nearly 50 years later this still has to be the greatest testimony ever given in Washington. If you have never read it take a few minutes as it is a classic.

Baseball Almanac is pleased to present a word-for-word transcript of Casey Stengel's July 8th "testimony" during the 1958 Senate Anti-Trust and Monopoly Subcommittee Hearings.

The kicker is what Mickey Mantle said
Senator Kefauver: Mr. Mantle (http://www.baseball-almanac.com/players/player.php?p=mantlmi01), do you have any observations with reference to the applicability of the antitrust laws to baseball?
Mr. Mantle: My views are about the same as Casey's (http://www.baseball-almanac.com/players/player.php?p=stengca01)
