Pastime Movie Review

armstrong robin cameos

A bittersweet baseball elegy set in the minor leagues in 1957. A boyish 41-year-old pitcher can't face his impending retirement and pals around with the team's pariah, a 17-year-old black rookie. Splendidly written and acted, it's a melancholy treat whether you're a fan of the game or not, and safe for family attendance. Shot at Chicago's Comiskey Park (now leveled). Note major league cameos. AKA: One Cup of Coffee.
