“Though there are some clips of celebrities and baseball hall-of-famers, this documentary stays true to the reality that the regular Joe is just as fascinating and interesting as any Hollywood star.” Rants Kelley Baker (The Angry Filmmaker), “True independent films such as this are rare treasures and deserve a global audience.”
