Great Made-for-TV Baseball Film
26 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

during the late 80s, these made for TV biopics were being made left and right. along comes this well acted and great story of former TIGER/EXPOS/WHITE SOX star Mr Ron LeFLORE. Lavar Burton is at his best in this film, very convincing. he really looked like a big leaguer and was able to even have the swing that Leflore had and his quick speed. this was always one of my favorite films on TV growing up, and the film still has a great impact on the 'baseball films'. its probably one of the most underrated and not well know baseball films. even today Ron Leflore still has a youth program for 'city kids' and is still involved with helping others from getting their lives back on track and keeping the kids of today out of trouble. i recently found a VHS Commercial copy of this film! and hope to see it make a DVD release someday, with some bonus material for all of us Ron Leflore, or just baseball fans all around. if you have the chance to see this film on TBS or whatever..check it out!
