In anticipation of the March 30th Major League Baseball opening game, Kol Shalom Movie Night is pleased to present The Yankles, a 2009 PG-13 (some language), 1 hour 50 minute long Jewish themed baseball movie, on Sunday, March 19 at 7 PM (moved to Sunday because of later sunset; zoom link to follow later).
A disgraced major league baseball player is paroled from his DUI prison sentence, with the condition that he do community service coaching baseball. Only an orthodox yeshiva is willing to take him on to help their hapless team, the Yankles. Several plots are woven into the storyline: personal redemption, teamwork, forgiveness, reconciliation, rediscovering Jewish traditions, and staying true to one’s principles.
The only familiar actor in this movie is Don Most, who played Ralph Malph in the TV series Happy Days. Most was born to a Jewish family in Brooklyn. Let’s all wear our baseball caps and jerseys if you have them! This movie will be a grand slam in your living room!
