New film about Josh Gibson

It's about time someone made a good film on maybe the greatest ballplayer who ever lived. NY Times has the scoop.
A new documentary, however, not only tells of Gibson’s legendary baseball accomplishments — historians and former players debate whether he actually hit a home run out of the old Yankee Stadium in 1934 — but it also tries to make the case that his drinking and apparent demons were a result of the brain tumor that eventually killed him.
