The organization, the writing by Ira Berkow, the footage, the research, all excellent. But it could have been so much more.

It's a must for baseball fans-Jewish or otherwise.

This engaging and well-put-together documentary has universal appeal to sports fans, regardless of ethnic background. It has a running time of 91 minutes that passes by much too quickly.
