Cover picture for the articleI like sports movies. There is usually drama, humor, effort, and twists of fate. In “Talent for the Game” we see baseball lover Edward James Olmos playing Virgil Sweet, a big league wanna-be catcher, but relegated to baseball scout. We see him checking out talented young players with potential. He has an eye for potential with a big helping of reality. As he meets pitchers and has them pitch to him he recognizes skills, needed development, and weaknesses. In the changing winds of pro ball, Virgil and his skills may be swept away in waves of data and statistics. He scouts for the California Angels.
