The Bases Are Loaded

2006 NR

Filmmakers Jeffrey Nagel and Anthony Lynch follow Baseball Hall of Famer and Negro League star Monte Irvin to Cuba to document his emotional reunion with Cuban pitcher Connie Marrero, who left the country to play for the Washington Senators from 1950 to 1954. As the men get reacquainted after more than 50 years apart, they discuss their shared love of baseball -- and their countries' differences when it comes to politics.
