New Release: The Perfect Game DVD and Blu-ray

The Perfect GameBaseball movie The Perfect Game was released on DVD and Blu-ray on Aug. 2, 2011, from Image Entertainment.

The independent family film tells the true story of the first non-U.S. baseball that won the Little League World Series. Cheech Marin (Machete) stars as a Mexican priest who, in 1957, helped a rag-tag group of poor, shoeless kids in Mexico and a down-and-out former major league player (Clifton Collins Jr. of TV’s The Event) as they embarked on a journey throughout the southern U.S. and into Williamsport, Pa., for the championship game. Along the way, they were nearly deported and weren’t allowed in certain restaurants or to travel in certain buses. But they overcame it all to win 13 games in a row and pitch the only perfect game in the championship. Emilie de Ravin (TV’s Lost) also stars.

Rated PG, the inspirational drama movie was released in theaters, but not too many, grossing a little over $1 million. So, the film’s biggest audience will be on disc.

Judging by the trailer (see below), The Perfect Game looks like the kind of movie that deserves a much bigger audience.

The DVD is priced at $27.97 and the Blu-ray at $29.97.
