Safe at Home! is a 1962 American comedy sports film starring Major League Baseball players Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris of the New York Yankees.[1] The film also stars William Frawley (in his final film appearance) and Don Collier, with appearances by Yankees Whitey Ford and Ralph Houk.

The film concerns a Florida boy who lies to his Little League teammates, telling them that 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 the players' hotel room result in chaos. The film was shot in Fort Lauderdale and Pompano Beach, Florida.
