Ballplayer: Pelotero was an official selection of the Hamptons International Film Festival, Santa Barbara International Film Festival, Miami International Film Festival, Cleveland Film Festival, and Portland International Film Festival.

I watched a screener of the film a few weeks ago, and reviewed it HERE. In short, I dug it, and think you will too.
