In the pre-game meeting, the Yankees' scouts told the players that Cardinals' reliever Barney Schultz usually tried to throw his first pitch across the plate to try to get ahead in the count. When the Cardinals brought Schultz in to pitch to Mickey in the bottom of the ninth inning, Mickey told catcher Elston Howard, the next hitter after Mickey, that he might as well go on into the clubhouse and get dressed because he was going to hit Schultz' first pitch for a home run. Moments later that's exactly what he did, winning the game and breaking the record. It was Mickey's "called shot."
