New York Yankees get ready for 1952 baseball season at spring training in St. Petersburg Florida. Shot of manager Casey Stengel talking. Shot of Yankees' "Big Three" starting pitchers warming up -- Allie Reynolds, Vic Raschi and Eddie Lopat. Catcher Yogi Berra catches a ball. Announcer notes absence of Joe DiMaggio, who retired after last season, but notes Yankees have plenty of other talent, including shortstop Phil Rizzuto, seen bunting. Candidates for Yankees' first base position run across the base and catch throws. Announcer says DiMaggio's replacement in center field will be Mickey Mantle, seen catching a fly ball (with trees in background), unleashing a strong throw, and flashing a big, youthful smile as he removes his cap. Yogi Berra bashes a long fly to right field.
