SAINT OF SECOND CHANCES (2023) Tribeca 2023

This is the story of Mike Veeck, son of Baseball owner Bill Veeck, whose Disco Demolition  forced his father to have to sell the White Sox. After bumming around for year Mike found redemption in the independent leagues of baseball where his crazy stunts brought in fans and his willingness to give second chances brought some greats back to the game.

Despite having some annoying recreations of Mike's younger life, this is one the great films of 2023. A delightful film about some good people who just want to have a good time.  It's a magical tale that put a big smile on my face and had me talking to everyone afterward about how this was the great unseen film of Tribeca. Why no one was talking about it and why no one seemed to have any interest in it was lost to us. 

This is pure magic. Its a film you put on and just fall into. Its good times with great people and even when it gets emotional, it earns earns every tear.

Highly recommended
