A great movie about a great player in a great game. A pitcher about to retire pitches one last hurrah, reflecting on his life as he does so.
Baseball is a game to relax as you watch it, and so is this movie. I rank it with Field of Dreams as great baseball films. To anyone who wants to remember how great baseball is as a game and as a pasttime!
