Talent for the Game ★★½ 1991 (PG)

A slight but handsomely produced baseball pleasantry about a talent scout who recruits a phenomenonal young pitcher, then sees the kid exploited by the team owner. More like an anecdote than a story, with an ending that aims a little too hard to please. Good for sports fans and family audiences. 91m/C VHS, DVD . Edward James Olmos, Lorraine Bracco, Jeff Corbett, Jamey Sheridan, Terry Kinney; D: Robert M. Young; W: David Himmelstein, Thomas Michael Donnelly, Larry Ferguson; M: David Newman.
