Casey at the BatDVD
There is no joy in Mudville, that much we know, but this whimsical take on the classic baseball poem delivers more than just at-the-plate theatrics. Elliot Gould stars as Casey Frank, a baseball star who in the summer of 1888 joins the beleaguered Mudville Hogs, the worst team in baseball. Casey's big bat sparks hope in the hearts of the entire city, but with one fateful at-bat he delivers an important lesson about dignity, pride and sportsmanship.
