Movies: Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris to Appear in "Safe at Home"

Jan. 18, 1962 - Roger Maris and Mickey Mantle will appear in starring roles in “Safe at Home,” an independent feature, to be filmed by Naud-Hamilburg Productions starting next month at the New York Yankees’ training camp in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. The Columbia release has an original screenplay by Tom Naud and Steve Rich. The film is about a Florida boy who lies to his Little League teammates, telling them he knows Mantle and Maris and will bring them to their team banquet. His attempts to meet his heroes during spring training by sneaking into the stadium and into their hotel room at the Yankee Clipper Hotel result in chaos, and the boy learns an important lesson about honesty.
