This movie is a must-see, not just for baseball fans; but for every movie fan. There is a wide range of emotions that the characters go through; and, as such, you will go through all the same emotions while watching it. The chemistry between Josh Charles and Maria Pitillo is very touching, and as their relationship develops, you really root for them to get together. And the way that the grandfather-character talks to the ghost of his Indian catcher is a lot like Sam Beckett talking to Al Calavicci on "Quantum Leap." So, if you liked that show, you'll like this movie. If you ever get to see it, that is. I first saw this movie on cable five years ago; and every month, I scour the TV Guide looking to see if it will be playing again. Alas, it hardly ever is. But I will be quite happy when it does.
