Scheduled for release this Friday, July 13, 2012, both theatrical and VOD, courtesy of Strand Releasing, is Ballplayer: Pelotero – a documentary film that provides a gritty and never before seen look inside the world of Major League Baseball (MLB) training camps in the Dominican Republic.
John Leguizamo narrates the tale, under the direction of Ross Finkel, Trevor Martin and Jon Paley; Boston Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine executive produced.
Ballplayer: Pelotero was an official selection of the Hamptons International Film Festival, Santa Barbara International Film Festival, Miami International Film Festival, Cleveland Film Festival, and Portland International Film Festival.
I watched a screener of the film a few weeks ago, and reviewed it HERE. In short, I dug it, and think you will too.
