‘Million Dollar Arm’ delivers solid base hit

“Million Dollar Arm” is a baseball movie that pulls off a smooth triple play. It’s a character-based comedy-drama that’s also a smart film about the business of sports. As if it weren’t difficult enough to work that double angle, there’s also an exotic international focus on immigrant players struggling with social disorientation and homesickness, an underreported aspect of the game that has caused many a gifted recruit to fail. And, by the way, it’s all based on a true story.
