Entertainment Reviews:

Variety -
"...Baseball fans will think they're in heaven: A [film] has finally nailed the actual playing of the Grand Old Game with remarkable realism..."
Total Film - 07/01/2000
"...Stirring visuals and feelgood plot...An uplifting sports drama..."
Box Office - 11/01/1999
"...Raimi masterfully frames Costner's impressively accurate fastball and curve to convey the aging pitcher's intensity..."
Los Angeles Times - 09/17/1999
"...Costner is intrinsically convincing as a star athlete, and it's pleasant to notice how he's been able to improve his work within his specific range..."

Product Description:

Director Sam Raimi follows up his 1998 hit A SIMPLE PLAN with a movie that completes Mr. Costner's unofficial trilogy of baseball films. Told almost entirely in flashback, the film concerns an already legendary 40 year-old pitcher, Billy Chapel, pitching the last game of his career that also marks the end of what has been, at best, a mediocre season. Going up against the Yankees, Billy remembers, while on the mound, his failed affair with the woman he still loves (Preston). As the game unfolds and it becomes apparent that he's on track to pitch a perfect game, Billy begins to wonder if he can win her back, and if his ailing arm can make it through nine innings.
