Elevating baseball, 1 April 2006
Author: tvincent-morke from United States

From Phoenix Film Festival viewing - elevates baseball from current morass and brings it back to wholesome status. Father and son odyssey caught merrily visiting and yukking up nations baseball and life.

Film covers the journey of a loving son and father visiting 30 ballparks, Negro League Museum, MLB Hall of Fame, and Field of Dreams Much was offered along the way.

Parkinson's disease was the cause of the timing of the baseball experience delayed by normal life until fathers' diagnosis. Audiences are very fortunate to be included in this experience from a well executed and personally entertaining perspective.

This father and son duo plus their casts of new friends kept the audience interested and entertained with apple pie humor as they criss-crossed the country sometimes with the help of fans, the baseball parks personnel, and the Parkinson's groups.

This film helps to revive and create feelings for baseball and the Field of Dreams original feeling.

This film promotes baseball and its place in America - with the realization that life is better for its existence.
