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.

We've been to the one in Englewood, and it's fantastic. The portions are more than generous and the prices are more than reasonable. Such delicious empanandas! I have been waiting rather impatiently for them to announce an opening date.
