Storyline

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.

What was "skinyjoemerilo" from Chicago thinking...in 2001
27 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After reading "skinnyjoemerlo" from Chicogo comment dated 2001 here on IMDb I didn't followup by securing a copy of the Marksmen. I dismissed an interest that had been originally developed in me to see the marksmen by a group of film buffs who highly recommend it. Members of this group really know films both historically and have been very enlighting with their analysis of the story content .

Many times they have saved me the price of admission and worst; wasting my time. Skinny Joe from Chicogo forgets that there is other than the big cities that make a film successful... we call it the "Great American Heartland". Films like this don't make it to the publics attention because the distributors view a real heartfelt storyline that reflects the interest of the Heartland as if it had no commercial value. I watched it last week at a friends home. This film will make you reflect on what really makes you happy. If your from a small town, or were from a small town,or as many people I meet today, that are from a large city who have matured and want to experience the peace ,friendliness, and belonging that the American Heartland provides ...See this film. P.S. I was born and raised in Philadelphia Pa. and live in NYC.. I know the difference!!!
