Watch The Kid from Left Field
- 1 hr 20 min
Harmon Jones directed this charming comedy about a young boy (played by Billy Chapin) who develops a deep love for the game of baseball by listening to his father's discussions. His dad once had a promising baseball career, but he never really succeeded. When the lad becomes a bat boy to the Bisons, a struggling team, the boy astonishes members of the team and management by relaying pearls of wisdom overheard from his father. A comedic chain of events ensues. The film receives very positive comments. Anne Bancroft, Dan Daily, Lloyd Bridges, Fess Parker and Fred F. Whacker also star.
