A Grand Slam!---both aesthetically and emotionally. Straight-forward and unpretentious. It's nice to see a baseball movie avoid the usual clichés and delve into more serious subject matter. As NYC is a baseball city, it's nice to see the borough of Brooklyn, home of much baseball pain, as a backdrop, not the cornfields of Iowa, where they really only follow college football. The cast seems earnest and authentic to where they live. The writing is tight and the editing is competent---much needed with short films. Most of all, it seems to connect with the audience. I hope to see more productions from Lori A. Martini and her cast and crew in the future, especially of a longer length.
