If you are not familiar with this level of baseball nerdiness, then Fastball will be a revelation, and hopefully an entertaining one. If you are familiar, then Fastball will satisfy on a deep and extremely specific level.
A fascinating and downright lovable documentary feature by Jonathan Hock.
The sunniness of Fastball leaves out a lot, but watching it can be as pleasurable as an afternoon at the ballpark.
The lively MLB-produced doc's choice archival material and full roster of new interviews will delight fans, both as a warm-up to the 2016 season and beyond.
Hock's documentary has a thrilling pop that should help it strike a competitive chord with anyone even remotely enchanted by our national pastime.
You don't have to be a baseball fanatic or for that matter a historian or a physicist to appreciate "Fastball" ...
I've seen lots of baseball clips but there are clips in this film I've never seen, including some fine clips of the legendary Walter Johnson. But there's a lot more to it than that.This is a film that no baseball fan should miss.
Baseball historians will best appreciate this documentary that tries to prove a popular source of speculation among the sport's aficionados.
As the boys of summer prepare to take the field again, Fastball is a briskly paced, welcome warm-up, beer and peanuts not included.
Suitably solemn yet irresistibly lively documentary about the myth, lore and logistics of baseball's classic pitch.
The irony of the push to speed up the game of baseball - the amount of time between pitches, between commercial breaks, between anything that might actually appeal to the iGeneration - is that speed has always been at the heart of the game.
Fastball will change the way you watch the game, without ever diminishing the sport's mystery and grandeur.
