My Experience: I don’t remember much about Mr. Baseball. I saw it when I was a teenager and gave it a terrible rating at that time. And when my indiscriminate teenage self hated a baseball movie, you know it’s bad. From the summaries I’ve read, it’s more or less a formulaic baseball movie filled with redemption and a surprising comeback yada yada. Formulaic is fine, but the one thing I remember is disliking Tom Selleck’s character so much that I didn’t buy his redemption story. Sadly, this is not the worst baseball movie ever, nor the worst baseball movie to take place in Japan.
