||Synopsis: By 2008, more than 25 percent of major league baseball players were born in Latin America. At 19, Miguel "Sugar" Santos, a serious kid from the Dominican Republic, signs with Kansas City. He flies to Phoenix for tryouts and is sent to the Class A team "The Swing" in the fictional town of Bridgetown, Iowa, where he lives with a farm family. Thus begins his odyssey: leaving his mom and girlfriend; living in an alien culture; learning English; overcoming jitters; working hard; achieving early success; navigating friendships, occasional racism, and a woman's mixed signals; dealing with an injury; trying performance-enhancing drugs; and, searching for his place in the world.

What's with the low ratings for this movie? I saw this at the Toronto
Film Festival, and people loved it. Is it that some audiences wanted a
regular sports movie, with everything leading up to the big game? This
follows Dominican ball players and their dreams of making it to the
bigs. We go from the Dominican to small town Iowa, then to New York
City in a movie that's pitch perfect the whole way. And it got
everything right, from how small towns in America watch these young
guys grow and progress, to how they're treated like animals when they
face injuries or setbacks.
The actors are mostly unknowns, and they give the movie a documentary
feel. I especially loved the old couple that takes one ball player in
every year, and the minor league baseball manager, who is portrayed
very fairly as a guy who pushes his players, but wants to see them make
This movie is a home run, pardon the pun, because it transcends the
sports genre and becomes a movie about finding one's self worth, no
matter where your career path takes you.
I believe that if you want something more from a sports movie than
being just a past-time, you'll find it in "Sugar", from the team who
directed "Half Nelson", another movie that was more concerned with
characters and self-worth over silly plot requirements.
To the low scorers out there I would say don't judge a movie for what
it's not, and really look at what it is. Because this is a special
movie that never goes wrong.
