Description by OLDIES.com:

When the record book closed on Boston Red Sox outfielder Jimmy Piersall's career, it showed 17 seasons in the major leagues and an impressive lifetime batting average of .272. But before he racked up those numbers, Piersall faced a foe much tougher that a 90-m.p.h. fastball: mental illness. Anthony Perkins stars as Piersall in this powerful true story. Fear Strikes Out also marks the filmmaking debut of Alan J. Pakula and Robert Mulligan, the team whose credits include To Kill A Mockingbird. From top to bottom, the film fields a stellar lineup of talent. And the result is a drama of unflinching force and effectiveness.

Product Description:

FEAR STRIKES OUT tells the courageous story of Red Sox outfielder Jimmy Piersall, who played seventeen seasons in the majors--with a lifetime batting average of .272-- while battling mental illness. Anthony Perkins' trademark intensity brings the ballplayer's nightmare to life and Karl Malden gives a strong performance as his overbearing, perfectionist father.
