i know im EXTREMELY late on this but i caught it on hbo late last night (insomnia is good for somethin'!) i thought it was very effective and interesting. i know this was billy crystal's take on the situation but how accurate is it? i really was feeling bad for maris at the end.
I can't say I've seen it but they had the top 50 baseball moments during a rain delay a few weeks ago and included that and Maris really didn't look too thrilled after he popped #61...I will have to try to track the movie down.

well they seemed to get along fairly well in the movie but i just couldnt believe the way yanks' fans treated him. makes me hate them even more
This is one of my all time favorite baseball movies. I loved it. From what I've read it was pretty accurate too. I know Billy Crystal talked to the family's of both Maris and Mantle so that he could try to get as much insight as possible.
