Probably the best tv movie of all time
14 October 1999 | by (Denton, TX) – See all my reviews

Levar Burton is a genius, and here is a great early work of his. A great baseball story, shot by the cinematographer of "Bladerunner." Finding it on video will be hard (unless you're near Scarecrow Video in Seattle), but you may catch it on TNT/TBS - every once in a while they show it.
