Following their highly publicized race to beat Babe Ruth's single season home run record during the 1961 pennant race, New York Yankee sluggers Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris, were teamed in this innocuous little film. Though travelling down familiar basepaths and shot on location at the Yankees' training camp in Fort Lauderdale, the film was rushed into release to coincide with the start of the 1962 baseball season and was a box-office hit, despite striking out with critics.
