Plot Synopsis

In the summer of 1961, NY Yankees superstars Roger Maris and Mickey Mantle chased one of baseball's most hallowed records: Babe Ruth's 1927 single-season mark of 60 homers. In the spotlight of the press and at the mercy of public opinion, both ballplayers paid a high personal price. Both faced mounting pressure that threatened to turn what should have been a triumph into a nightmare. Ultimately, it was their deep friendship and mutual respect that saw them through this trying time.
