Storyline

Stuart Warren loves playing the piano. Trouble is, his father and older brother are big on baseball. Lou coaches his boys, it's big brother Buddy's last year in the league, Lou is thinking championship, and Lou's Dukes lead the Gophers by the fourth inning. Buddy is always on Stuart's case, under the guise of a smile and pseudo helping hand. To build character, Lou brings Stuart in from the outfield to pitch the fourth, to the dismay of pitcher Paulie's connected father, Frank. The first two batters to face Stuart get hits, Buddy jeers Stuart, Stuart simmers, and Bernie, the assistant coach, calls on Stuart to deliver one good pitch. Does he have it in him? A Warren never quits! Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Cute, well made and with a sweet sense of humor
20 February 2008 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

While this is a short film of only 18 minutes, it seems more like a movie than most shorts. Part of this is because it's a reasonably complex film with lots of excellent action and dialog and because it's so darn watchable.

Poor little Stuart Warren is miserable. His father, a little league coach, insists that he wants his youngest son to play on his team--though nerdy Stuart would much rather play the piano. This isn't just because he's nonathletic, but also because his evil and sadistic older brother also plays on the team and will make Stuart's life miserable. The dad tries a little too hard to make Stuart a ball player, but he's not a one-dimensional jerk either.

What I really liked about the film was its gentle sense of humor. It is filled with cute little vignettes and is handled with a nice delicate touch. A great little film about America's pastime and one worth seeing.
