Congrats to filmmaker Richard Linklater on his insightful portrait on legendary baseball coach, Augie Garrido. As a longtime high school baseball coach, I learned a lot and was reminded about the best things we experience in coaching. "Eliminate the fear, and it's fun. Eliminate concern for results, and it's fun. Do your best--fail--and then do your best again." These Augie-isms ring true with my three decades worth experience. And, the occassional profanity-laced tirade made me feel good that I wasn't the only coach who just can't take it when players settle for less than they can accomplish. The bonus features are great for a coach or anyone who wants to see what really goes on behind the scenes in baseball program. To see someone so completely dedicated to a game...it's pretty cool. Augie's about 70 in human years, but only 12 in baseball years! --Tom D., Michigan

I saw parts of this film on ESPN quite a while ago and have been eagerly awaiting the release of the DVD. It is almost here!!!!!! As the mother of two baseball playing boys, this really struck a chord with our household. The lessons imparted by Coach Garrido to his players, and the respect the players have for him are priceless to see. Filmaker Linklater obviously has a love of the game of baseball and equal respect for this coach. I plan on purchasing a copy for not only our household, but for my teenage son's select baseball coach so that the whole team can see it. Only a few boys playing baseball will ever get a chance to play for Garrido, but with this dvd, so many can gain a little bit of his wisdom. That is PRICELESS!!

I have loved baseball all my life and still play it in my late 40's. I'm almost embarrassed that it took 6-7 years for me to find this documentary (it was recommended by a friend) I'm also a fan Richard Linklater. I heard Richard Linklater once say in an interview that "pressure is a choice." Now I know where he got that. I cannot imagine anyone commanding more respect than Augie Garrido. I was particularly moved by his comments around discovering who the player is first rather than the conventional coaching method of molding a player in who a coach wants him to be. So true. This is an inspirational documentary that I will evangelize to all my baseball enthusiast friends for years to come. I wonder what Asian and Latino/Carribean baseball enthusiasts would think of this documentary...this story is so American.

THE ABSOLUTE BEST baseball documentary out there. This follows Augie Garrido and the Texas Longhorns baseball team through their 2006 season. Garrido is mic'd up and you get close up action with camera's in the dugouts. After watching this video, I immediately sent it to my father, and he then immediately sent it to my uncle. We all enjoyed the insight of Augie's life and all who was interviewed in this documentary. A must see for anyone. Also gives you the option of playing video with or without the cuss bleeps. Family friendly, yet I recommend the adults to watch it in its original beep free form. It will make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up.

As a college baseball fan I am somewhat embarrassed I did not watch this documentary till the video of Augie Garrido yelling at his players went viral. While that clip gives a glimpse into the clubhouse, that rant seems to be the exception rather than the norm for Garrido.

If you are a Texas Longhorn or college baseball fan in general watching this movie is a great way to spend two hours of your time.

I was fortunate enough to attend the premier of this movie in Austin. Augie is truly amazing and stands alone among baseball coaches. He looks to bring the best from his players and from this documentary you see some of how he does it. Whether he is intensifying his practice sessions or imparting to his boys how to view their position in a game he does like no one else ever has. Richard Linklater should be highly commended on the quality film that he has produced. It took dedication, patience, a wonderful directors eye and a love of the game to put this wonderful movie together. Thank you both.

This video would appeal to baseball fans in general and baseball coaches in particular. I am not a University of Texas supporter nor a huge fan of the style of baseball that the Longhorns play. However, I find this DVD to be wildly entertaining mainly due to the access to private conversations, in-game audio, as well as post-game team talks. Coach Garrido is a master at communicating his vision of baseball to his players. As a coach myself, this is the part of the DVD that I find the most fascinating. I bought this DVD after reading a review of it in Sports Illustrated. I was NOT disappointed!
