I stumbled onto a great film recently on the MLBTV channel.  ‘The Perfect Game’ is a true story that has it’s beginning in Monterrey, Mexico in 1957.  As soon as I began watching I realized I remembered the real facts although I had never seen the movie!  The main character is a 12-year-old ambidextrous pitcher.  This is a wonderful rags-to-riches saga of a bunch of “street urchins,” a priest who loves baseball and a down on his luck guy who once was with the St. Louis Cardinals.  I will refrain from saying more, but the film is quite accurate in portraying the actual events that took place when I was 13-14 yrs old!  Click here to watch a preview and click here to read a great article on the team.
