    Ballplayer: Pelotero

(Ross Finkel, Trevor Martin, Jonathan Paley, US/Dominican Republic 2011, 77 min., DCP)

America’s Favorite Pastime. This compelling documentary narrated by John Leguizamo is a gritty and never-before-seen look inside the world of professional baseball training camps in the Dominican Republic. Miguel Angel and Jean Carlos are two of the top prospects at a training camp, and they are both about to turn 16, which means they can be signed to a farm team and ultimately move up to the big leagues. Filmmakers Ross Finkel, Trevor Martin, and Jonathan Paley provide an up-close look at the cost of the American dream.
