Maris' widow, Pat, is hospitalized due to complications from arrhythmia and watches the game on television from a hospital bed. Decades earlier in 1961, Maris is presented with the Most Valuable Player award for the 1960 baseball season, but Mickey Mantle remains the New York Yankees. Mantle starts off hot while Maris struggles. Maris suspects he may be traded, but new manager Ralph Houk. Has Mantle and Maris switch places in the Yankees' batting order to see if it helps. It does, and Maris begins to hit home runs at a record pace.
Mantle keeps pace and it becomes clear that both M&M Boys. Will make a run at Babe Ruth. S record of 60 homers in one season. Mickey's life off the field is taking a toll on his playing. He drinks, enjoys the Manhattan nightlife and arrives at the ballpark hung over.

Invite him to move in with them in a modest home in Queens, with one condition: no women. New York's fans and media pull for the popular and personable Mantle, a long-time Yankee.

Who also happened to be Babe Ruth's admirer and ghostwriter, makes a decision: unless the record is broken in 154 games (the same number Ruth played in 1927), the new record would be listed separately from Ruth's record, because MLB has just begun using a new 162-game season.Contrary to popular belief, and the movie's title, there was never any "asterisk" involved or mentioned in real life. It appears Mantle is not going to make it; his health deteriorates and he plays in constant pain. Maris, meanwhile, is unaccustomed to such a high level of public scrutiny and is uncomfortable interacting with the media, who dissect and distort everything he says or does.
The fans heckle Maris and even throw objects at him on the field. The stress becomes so intense that Maris' hair begins to fall out in clumps. The Yankees owner also tries to favor Mantle by asking Houk to switch Mantle and Maris in the batting order, but Houk refuses, because the redesigned lineup has been winning a higher percentage of games. Chronic injury and alcohol abuse catch up with Mantle, and an ill-advised injection by a doctor infects his hip and lands him in a hospital bed. With Mantle gone from the lineup, the stage becomes set for Maris.
He fails to break the record in the 154th game of the season, but he does finally hit the record-breaking 61st home run during the final game of the 162-game season. According to a voiceover by long-time Yankee Stadium public address announcer Bob Sheppard. , during the end credits, no asterisk was ever officially placed next to Roger's feat, due to separate records being created for the 154 and 162 game seasons.
