Billy Crystal’s acclaimed 61*—his film about the summer in which Yankee sluggers Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris staged a captivating assault on Babe Ruth’s celebrated home run record—will be the subject of a charity Trivia Nite at the Yogi Berra Museum & Learning Center on Wednesday, November, 28 at 7 pm.
The contest, conducted by the entertainment trivia company Trivia AD, will be followed by a screening of the film, which originally aired on HBO in 2001. A couple of the actors, including Paul Borghese, who played Yogi, will attend.
Questions will range from easy to, well, not so easy. For example: Which stadium was used to re-create old Yankee Stadium (A: Tiger Stadium). OK, so which stadium was used to re-create old Memorial Stadium in Baltimore? (A: Los Angeles Coliseum).
Individuals and teams are invited to register. Fee is $10 per person, with prizes given to the winners. To RSVP or for more info call: 973.655.6891.
Next up on Yogi Berra Museum & Learning Center’s baseball movie trivia series is Field of Dreams on Dec. 12.
