This looks really promising.
Slated for release in late-March (Thursday, March 24 to be exact) is a new Baseball documentary that focuses one the one thing we all covet and fear. This documentary is about the "Fastball," and it draws from some very notable Baseball names and personalities.
It is narrated by Kevin Coster (of course) and features players like Justin Verlander, Andrew McCutchen, David Price, Hank Aaron, Nolan Ryan, Bob Gibson, Goose Gossage, Derek Jeter and the late Tony Gwynn. Go here for the movie website.
Per a press release I received:
The essence of baseball is the primal battle between the pitcher and batter, but the magic of the game arises from that confrontation, only 396 milliseconds in the making. The mysteries and memories of Baseball's greatest heroes are revealed in “Fastball,” featuring interviews with dozens of former players, from legendary Hall of Famers to current All-Stars.Watch the trailer below.
Based on the original idea by the film’s producer, Thomas Tull, who also produced the Jackie Robinson biopic “42,” “Fastball” is peppered with archival footage of baseball's greatest moments plus original high-speed 4K footage and motion graphics that unlock the secrets hidden within a ball traveling over 100 mph. While players, historians, and scientists might disagree on who was actually the fastest pitcher in history – and yes, the film does the physics and concludes with a clear verdict – “Fastball” tells the story of the game itself.
