This sounds like a good baseball movie

Sugar. It's about Dominican baseball and opens April 3.

Spiritual movie about the Ghost Players from the Field of Dreams is in rough-cut.

Just like the ball players in the movie come back from the dead to play the game they love, each of us has a dream we have given up on. And when we do, whether we know it or not, we die a little bit. But this field has brought us all back to life.

It turned out a lot more spiritual than I ever imagined. I was blessed to be witness to 18 years of magic. Here's a synopsis;
GHOST PLAYER is a documentary that chronicles the adventures and misadventures of a boisterous and unlikely team of middle aged Iowa baseball players. In 1989, Hollywood went to Iowa to shoot the FIELD of DREAMS. Little did anyone know this blockbuster would spawn a comedic baseball show starring local ballplayers that would have an 18 year run and travel the world. GHOST PLAYER tells the story of how this zany team ranging from a hog farmer to a state representative moved audiences around the world and changed the players’ lives forever. From Dyersville, we follow the Ghost Players around the world as warm hearted, comedic ambassadors of the best that the American Heartland has to offer – baseball, tomfoolery, and good old-fashioned family fun. We see them bring the comfort that only baseball can give to men and women stationed in the military in the far-flung corners of the world. But most of all, we witness how America’s favorite pastime and a Hollywood movie set can give one group of men from a small Iowa town a second chance to live the life they’ve always dreamed.
Thanks for your reply.
