Storyline

Bret Packard is the best baseball player in the world. Bret Packard is rich, famous, good-looking, and set to win his fourth championship ring. But Bret Packard is bored. That all changes when a teammate is mysteriously stabbed during a ball field brawl. Using this violence as a springboard, Bret begins a new game, a game where only he knows the rules. Using his powers of persuasion, Bret pits teammate against teammate by promising everyone the one thing that they want the most, whether it be power, respect, or cold hard cash. Soon, the entire team is self-destructing, and Bret couldn't be happier. But with their lives and careers on the brink of devastation, Bret's teammates and family realize that they have to take baseball - and life - back from Bret Packard, once and for all.

Satan gets drafted to the Majors...
11 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie made me squirm. It a movie you may not want to watch with your parents or girlfriend. The bad guy (portrayed by Mark Mench) does things to his team members and friends (and babysitter, even!) that are too awful to believe. And then he smiles like he's done them a favor.

The closest thing I can compare this to is the Oscar-nominated "Closer" except much meaner: this movie gets inside your head and screws around with your brain. This film is poison in pinstripes. If that sounds appealing, go rent it.

My only complaint is with soundtrack issues. Oftentimes I could not hear dialog. And be warned. There's a ton of it!
