Movie Info

Released in April of 1962 to take advantage of the new baseball season and the enthusiasm surrounding some of its better-known players, this sports-oriented children's story by Walter Doniger centers around some ill-advised bragging by a young Little Leaguer. Hutch Lawton (Brian Russell) has just told his friends that he and his Dad are good buddies with all-time baseball greats Roger Maris and Mickey Mantle. This fib soon gets him in plenty of hot water as he is forced to search out his heroes at spring training in Florida and make a plea for help. Along with appearances by the Yankee's two top players are pitcher Whitey Ford and coach Ralph Houk.more

Mild but pleasant kids film, with a documentary like inside look at the Yankees and baseball.

Classic Film and Television

Instead it feels more like a publicity stunt meant to up the stock of Mantle, Maris and the polarizing New York Yankees.

Full Review… | December 25, 2010

This film is a critic proof one that's geared for the kiddies, Yankee fans and those who hero worship ballplayers.
