Just like apple pie, McDonald’s, bald eagles and Beyoncé, baseball is the American way. Once upon a time (read: the 70s-90s, mostly), the Great American Pastime was routinely celebrated in movies like Major League, A League of Their Own, The Natural and, of course, Field of Dreams and Angels in the Outfield (people naturally love baseball ghosts). In the present day, the baseball craze has died down somewhat, possibly due to the fact that the sport hasn’t had a huge, Sammy Sosa/Mark Mcgwire-style showdown in years to get amped over. Recent, serious baseball-centric films like Moneyball and 42, which told the story of Jackie Robinson, have seen success, but there hasn’t been the same wave of feel-good sports flicks that Bobby and his Little League team could go catch after practice together. Now, there’s a film coming down the pipeline that is attempting to fill that void. Here we have Million Dollar Arm, a Disney concoction starring Jon Hamm that is somehow, regrettably, not about a bionic pitcher. Nor is it attached to a Million Dollar Baby. Hamm plays real-life sports agent J.B. Bernstein, who once saw huge career success with baseball greats but isn’t bringing in the talent anymore. His crazy scheme to rectify his career is to travel to India and create a reality show with young cricket players, the best of which come back with him to America to try out for the Majors. It’s like Trouble with the Curve, but with a game that lasts for a week.
