I was privileged to see this in preview before its scheduled theatre release date in August of 2008. Unfortunately, it never made it to theatres, but is Well worth the purchase. It is a heartwarming, beautiful movie with a message that is serious, but not serious enough to take anything away from the good humor of this film based on a true story that deserves to be retold for ages to come. Cheech Marin and Clifton Collins, Jr. (Gonzales-Gonzalez) give awe-inspiring performances, and a number of timely issues like women in sports reporting, racism, prejudice, and unfortunately stereotypical white baseball players from the 50's (sad-to-say, from my childhood home team of the St. Louis Cardinals) who give the only vulgar reference, to an athletic supporter, in the entire movie. Truly gives you something to cheer about. A MUST-SEE!
