Re: Best Baseball Movies/Docs
Perhaps leading us astray, I'll ask if anyone else has read "The Universal Baseball Association," a novel from sometime in the 70s, I think?
It's from before I was born, before I was into fantasy baseball, and (I think) before Fantasy Baseball was even invented, but it's sort of a book that alternates between two narratives: (1) a guy who invents his own baseball league and (2) the story told from the perspectives of the players he creates. I thought it was really cool, especially by "Assigned Reading for High School English" standards.
I've re-read it twice since, albeit not in several years. I mention it because I've always thought it'd make a great movie, using a framework not unlike "The Princess Bride" (where you have what appears to be a main story, but you end up caring more about the story-within-the-story).
Hell, I'd even go ahead and say it could make a great play, too.
The production would require exactly one setting (a dingy apartment) and 1 main actor (and 2-3 extras) for the main "story," and the majority of the production would be within the fantasy baseball league. An omni-present narrator would probably be the best way to handle the transitions and exposition.
