As a pitch - low & outside... in the dirt.
21 September 2015 | by stevealexander-2See all my reviews

Well shot, great idea, it could have been lots of fun. This project misses a chance to be insightful, humorous & inspiring. There was a great chance to get an idea what the players thought, or what it felt like to be on the field with real pros in a real game... It just comes off week, & very has few laughs... Seeing him actually play full innings at least, would have been much better. Its a game of stats, a game of patience, & it is supposed to be fun... too bad more players * dugout interacting happened.... but he'd of had to stick around for a few minutes at each game. Ferrell's Shtick has fouled out... He's taking himself too seriously in an attempt to be funny...
