Mr. Baseball

( 2 )


When has-been baseball player Jack Elliot (Tom Selleck) is signed by a Japanese team, he is initially reluctant to take the game seriously. Elliot is very successful, though, as he teaches the team about American chutzpah, and they remind him of the value of respect. He must fight his way out from under a slump to show that he deserves the title.

    Great Movie!!!!

    This movie is wonderful for those of you who like feel good baseball movies. Jack Elliot (Tom Selleck) is a washed up Yankee who gets sent to Japan to play for who he thinks is a bad manager. However, as the movie goes on, they get to understand each other better.
