Watch: Trailer for Baseball Doc 'Fastball' Narrated by Kevin Costner
"Sounds like trouble, is what it sounds like." Gravitas Ventures has debuted a trailer for the documentary Fastball, produced by Legendary Pictures and directed by Jonathan Hock, with narration by actor Kevin Costner. The film examines "the magic within the 396 milliseconds it takes a fastball to reach home plate" and focuses on the greatest fastball pitchers in the sport's history, attempting to figure out who threw the fastest pitch. There are appearances by Hank Aaron, Nolan Ryan and Derek Jeter, among others. This trailer doesn't reveal everything, and it plays up the angle of "so who threw the fastest pitch? You have to watch to find out the answer!" But it does look pretty good. Any and every baseball fan needs to check this out below.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Jonathan Hock's documentary Fastball, found on YouTube:
The essence of baseball is the primal battle between the pitcher and batter, but the magic of the game arises from that confrontation, only 396 milliseconds in the making. The mysteries and memories of Baseball's greatest heroes are revealed in Fastball, featuring interviews with dozens of former players, from legendary Hall of Famers to up-and-coming All-Stars, along with Kevin Costner narrating. The doc explores the magic within the 396 milliseconds it takes a fastball to reach home plate, and decipher who threw the fastest pitch ever. Fastball is directed by filmmaker Jonathan Hock, of Off the Rez previously and a few "30 for 30" episodes. This doc opens in select theaters starting March 25th this year. Anyone?
