In 1927, Babe Ruth made baseball history by batting 60 home runs in a single season. But in the summer of '61, New York Yankee Roger Maris and fellow swinger and friend Mickey Mantle are hoping to beat that untouchable record and etch their names in the baseball hall of fame. Impervious to all competition, their true rivals are each other. Roger's got the batting chops but his friend Mickey's media savvy has won the public over. With history in the making, and their deep friendship at stake, it's anybody's game in this HBO Original Movie. For the love of the game or the fame, this isn't the year to strike out.
