I have never followed baseball and know very little about the history of the game, but I REALLY enjoyed this movie. There was great "character development" and very relatable themes. Even watched all of the commentary (which I rarely ever do for a movie) and was completely engrossed.

Not great, but not bad - I thought it was better than the recent one about Jackie Robinson, which seemed overly "Disnified" (fake, pumped up, over-acted and trite). One baseball movie I've always liked is Eight Men Out (and I'm sorry to say - Major League). This one did however tell me a story about which I didn't know much. Fun to watch once or twice.

A great film. The summer of 1961, Mantle & Maris. Makes me feel as if I was almost there. Great for any baseball fan to watch.
