    last Christian movie I'll watch
    I went into this movie with 0 expectations, it was at the movie theatre, so I went. This movie makes most hallmark movies look like the Shawshank redemption.

    The good: it will make you laugh, even if it is laughing at it for the most part. Oh also the part where they send the protagonist to jail.

    The bad: the acting at points is so cheesy and corny that it is at times very hard to watch. Of course the antagonist of the movie is someone who is anti-Bible. This movie is going to most likely cringe anyone out who is under 50 and even most Christian's will find this unwatchable.

    The ugly: I don't know why it seems like every single one of these movies has to end it by everyone cheering and clapping in a position that makes 0 sense. Also the baseball that is played looks horrible, they couldn't even get some real talent or special effects apparently.

    Was all set to see another standard Hollywood violent action movie but switched to 'Running the Bases' in hopes of seeing something different, something with more heart in it. Great decision! Well acted, drama, humor, true to life story, realistic high school baseball, excellent cinematography, and, yes, realistic portrayal of people dealing with very hard life challenges, making them question God. Highly recommend this movie, especially if you played in high school sports (I played Little League), but it's a really great movie whether you played sports or not. The story highlights interactions between coaches and players, players and players, and parents and children. Your heart will be moved.
