Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
Academy Award-winner Dustin Hoffman narrates filmmaker Peter Miller's documentary tracing Jewish involvement in the development of American baseball. From Sandy Koufax's campaign to achieve equal rights for all players to Hank Greenberg's unwavering support of the legendary Jackie Robinson, Jewish personalities have played a pivotal role in shaping this uniquely American sport, and ensuring that every athlete has their turn at bat. Interviews with Al Rosen, Shawn Green, Kevin Youklis, Maury Allen, Larry King, and Ron Howard offer additional insight into the role Jews played in making baseball the great American pass-time, and a rare, archival interview with Koufax allows fans to witness the evolution of their favorite sport firsthand.
