Editors Note
Note In the twilight of his glory days, Jack is no longer hitting them like he used to and finds himself traded to Japan. He manages to alienate everyone on the team including the manager, without improving his batting average. But with the love of a Japanese girl and a newfound respect for Japanese culture, Jack finds a way to win.
Plot Summary
Summary After being bounced out of the majors, Jack Elliot heads to Japan to play pro baseball. He finds a very different game and culture across the Pacific. Elliot strikes up a relationship with his boss' daughter. At first, he tries to bully his teammates and the club owners, but he comes to accept and respect his new home.

USA Today "...The final face-off satisfies like a cold stadium brew...." 10/02/1992 p.4D

Review Schepisi and Selleck also do a nice, quiet job of making the title character convincing. He isn't overwritten or overplayed, and seems like what he is: A player of considerable but not unlimited ability who needs to do some growing up. He grows up, the games get played, the subplots resolve themselves satisfactorily, and although the movie sets no records for brilliance, it works.

ReviewSource Boxoffice Magazine
Review [Love] Like baseball itself, For Love of the Game inspires several types of emotions in its viewers while running its course--sometimes suspenseful...and sometimes able to capture the timelessness of a special part of life.

Review [Field] The best sports movies are ones that carry simple, but powerful, themes beyond just the action on the field. One of the best in this genre is Field Of Dreams.
