Robert Peter "Mickey" Micelotta was born and raised in Queens (Corona) New York. As an 18-year-old, Mickey was signed as an amateur free agent by the Philadelphia Phillies before the 1947 season. He played 13 total seasons of professional baseball, two of which were spent in the National League with the Philadelphia Phillies. He played a total of 17 career MLB games.
He missed the 1951 and 1952 seasons (his 23 y/o and 24 y/o prime seasons) as he was serving in the Korean War.
After his stint in MLB, Mickey played six more seasons in pro baseball, all in the minors. Micelotta was later in the carpet business in New York City and retired to Greenacres, FL.
In his Letters from Home Plate response, Mickey lists Phil Rizzuto as his favorite player growing up, Warren Spahn as the toughest pitcher he ever faced, and Wrigley Field as his favorite park to play in.
