Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris, one was the Yankees' best loved players and the other was their most valuable. 1961 was about to be the summer that no one who loves baseball will ever forget. Both men find that they are approaching Babe Ruth's 1927 single-season 60 home-run record. Facing pressure from the media and the stands, both men know that there is only room for one winner. The fans make their choice, but the people's favorite isn't the favorite to win.

Not great, but not bad - I thought it was better than the recent one about Jackie Robinson, which seemed overly "Disnified" (fake, pumped up, over-acted and trite). One baseball movie I've always liked is Eight Men Out (and I'm sorry to say - Major League). This one did however tell me a story about which I didn't know much. Fun to watch once or twice.

A great film. The summer of 1961, Mantle & Maris. Makes me feel as if I was almost there. Great for any baseball fan to watch.
