Directed by Oscar nominee Chuck Braverman (Curtain Call), Bottom of the Ninth is a real-life Bull Durham story. This documentary chronicles a season with the Somerset Patriots, a minor league baseball team in a race for the championship. Interviews with players and coaches reveal that the heart and soul of America's national pastime is not with the overpaid, scandal-ridden major leagues, but in the farm clubs and minor leagues where team members play out of a true passion for the game. A Directors Guild nominee for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Documentary.
