Preview: Ballplayer: Pelotero (2012)


The story of two Dominican youths competing for spots in the American Baseball Leagues battle a Mafia-like organization willing to destroy those who do not agree to sign up to their "guaranteed placement" program or provide them with untold riches by sponsoring them.

  • Poster: F


There's nothing at all interesting about this poster. The font selection is bland, the scene selection is uninspired and every bit of intrigue the trailer suggests is entirely missing from this design.

  • Trailer: C-


While this kind of real life crime documentary might appeal to some, the trailer is so poorly constructed that even those who might be most interested will be lulled to sleep by it.
