The Marksmen is about a native Wausau boy named Tommy Madden, who makes it big in big league baseball, but is forced to leave in disgrace. He returns home after the sudden death of his mother, and faces his father's disappointment in him, even though others consider him a hero. With the comfort of his high school sweetheart, he faces his past and leads a new team, The Marksmen, made up of his hometown buddies, to the national softball fastpitch tournament.

Good Film!
17 October 2002 | by (Wisconsin) – See all my reviews

For most of these actors (and non actors) first film it was wonderfully done. Jay Schillinger did a great job with this movie! This movie didn't get the attention it deserved. It as a great plot line and shows off life in a small town in Wausau quite well, with most of the actors in the movie being from Wausau.
