"61*" is not just a sports movie, it is a history lesson in what used to make baseball great. Most of us were not alive to witness the 61 home run race in the summer of 1961 and this movie serves as our own personal newsreel fo the events.
Audience Reviews for 61* ½ Being a huge fan of baseball, but someone who was born much later than the 1961 Home run race, made 61* a real joy of a viewing experience for me.
