Safe at Home!

Low-key acting reaches new heights, or is that depths, in this ’60s era curio.

Micky Mantle and Roger Maris, the homer-hittin’ heroes of the New York Yankees at the time, play themselves. Talk about typecasting.

While The Mick is all grins and biceps-poppin’ good times, Maris almost goes to sleep on the silver screen.

Decades later, he would have made an ideal zombie on The Walking Dead!

While it’s probably a good thing Maris kept the day job, this light-hearted tale of a young boy who heads off to spring training to kidnap the diamond legends is a pleasant time-filler.
