Singer/actress Doris Day once embarked on a whirlwind affair with late American baseball player MICKEY MANTLE, according to an upcoming book.
American author David Kaufman clams in his tell-all tome Doris Day: The Untold Story of the Girl Next Door that Day met Mantle on the set of 1962 movie That Touch of Mink.
He writes, "A notorious womaniser, Mantle boasted to friends that not only had he slept with Day at his regular suite in New York's St. Moritz Hotel, but that she was 'one of the best f**ks of his life.'"
However, a spokeswoman for Day has refused to comment on the reports.
