Default Mickey Mantle in photo ? Year ?

This appears to be Mickey Mantle but would like others to confirm. Any guess on the year and the catcher he is sliding into?

Far from an expert on 50s Yankees, but it looks a bit like Andy Carey.

This thread bothered me. Unquestionably it's not Andy Carey, but I couldn't quite place who it was. The Yankees farm team, The KC A's, was in my head. Something was there, he's very familiar, but couldn't reach it. Big ears, high hat...and suddenly BOOM!!!! you nailed it. Norm Sieburn!!!!! Well done!! Now I can sleep tonight. Ha ha!

I was such a dangerous hitter I even got intentional walks during batting practice.

Just like I said, I am far from an expert!

You almost nailed it. I believe it is Siebern.
