(Ron Shelton, US 1988, 108 min., 35mm)
America’s Favorite Pastime | Director in Person. “Crash” Davis (Kevin Costner) is a veteran minor league catcher who once had a “cup of coffee” in the majors. His newest project is a young power pitcher named “Nuke” LaLoosh who is supposed to be the next big thing if he can learn how to control his pitches. Unfortunately for Crash, Nuke is also taken under the wing of sultry Annie Savoy (Susan Sarandon), who has her own special training regimen, and may just be the woman Crash has been waiting his entire life for.
