The owner of Mickey Mantle's Restaurant on Central Park South has opted to temporarily change the name of his eatery to Ted Williams -- a former Boston Red Sox star -- but only for the duration of the World Series, the New York Post reported.

Owner Bill Liederman was a longtime friend of the famed Yankee outfielder.

Peter Anastos, a restaurant manager, believes Mantle would have enjoyed the prank.

"Mickey Mantle was a prankster, and his kids would be laughing," Anastos told the Post.

Even diehard Yankee fans took the joke like good sports.

"They did it as a tribute to the right person," David Simmons told the Post

Nice prank, and tip of the hat.

Also, not bad free advertising for the joint...

I wonder if they'll do a better business during the series?
