Notes For Mantle Death Bed Speech To Be Auctioned

(Undated) -- The dying words of baseball legend Mickey Mantle will soon be sold at auction. "TMZ Sports" reports the handwritten notes Mantle penned when outlining his final public remarks will be put up for bid at the end of April. Mantle spoke from his bed at Baylor Medical Center in July of 1995, just one month before he died from illnesses including liver cancer and hepatitis. In the speech, he thanked Yankees fans for their support and issued a plea for people to take care of their bodies because "God only gave us one body."
