See this film: Safe at Home! @ South Boston Branch Library

Even the most hardcore Red Sox fan might feel a little begrudging affection for the pinstripes after watching Safe At Home! (1962). Of course, it helps that it takes place almost half a century ago, when Yankees Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris were vying to break the Babe's single season home run record. The two sluggers star in this heartwarming drama about a Little League team that dreams of seeing them in person, and though the ballplayers were wise not to leave the diamond for the big screen, director Walter Doniger does touch on sentiments that both Boston and New York fans can appreciate. It screens at the South Boston Branch Library, 646 East Broadway, Boston | free | Tuesday, August 23 @ 1 pm | 617.268.0180.
