“Strangers in the Bronx” with Andrew O’Toole

June 10, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

“There’s always some youngster coming up — they’ll find somebody.” -Joe DiMaggio, 1951

Rare is the athlete who captures the imagination of a generation. In Joe DiMaggio and Mickey Mantle, sports culture had two such figures. For one year only, the paths of these two baseball icons converged, the naissance of Mantle’s career poignantly juxtaposed with the slow descent of DiMaggio’s final season.

“Strangers in the Bronx” is more than a chronicle of the 1951 pennant-winning team, it is also a study of heroes: the decline of an all-too mortal American icon and the emergence of the newest sensation in sport.
