Fastpitch Directed by Juliet Weber, Jeremy Spear, 2000
Intelligent, insightful, touching" - The New York Times
When memories of his collegiate softball stint loom larger than a promising art career, filmmaker Jeremy Spears decides to step up to the plate once more before it’s too late. Armed with dreams of athletic glory, Jeremy dives into the fascinating world of fastpitch softball, America’s last barnstorming sport, and finds himself on the road with Ashland, Ohio’s team.
In an intimate account of the once popular sport that is quickly fading from glory, the award winning documentary film Fastpitch takes a riveting look at the everyday lives of people chasing a dream on the back roads of America. And, come tournament time, when Ashland are still in the game, only money–and luck–stand in the way of a World Championship title.
