By K. Harris HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on October 3, 2011
Format: DVD
Admittedly, Little League Baseball doesn't hold a large fascination for me. It's simply not something that I've given much thought to. And yet, I found the documentary "Boys of Summer," about an unlikely team from a small Caribbean island, to be a pretty incredible story. The island in question is Curacao, off the coast of Venezuela. With a population shy of 150,000, this tiny hamlet has become a baseball powerhouse returning to the Little League World Series as the Caribbean representative seven consecutive years. Keith Aumont's stirring film highlights the season in year number eight as the team, once again, makes a bid for the world's top spot. It's a season filled with highs and lows and "Boys of Summer" is a fitting tribute to the game.

The film is basically broken into three distinct segments. Initially, we are introduced to the new team as they ready for the all-important Caribbean Championship. It's a relatively diverse set of boys and about six of them get featured in the presentation (back story, family, etc...). Some are stepping up for the first time, some live for the game, some are more relaxed in demeanor. Although we don't get as intimate as I might have expected, the filmmakers have done a good job showing the boyhood normalcy in the group. The rather intense coach really does push the team. This year, they are smaller and more inexperienced than in recent seasons. The middle section of the movie shows the team progressing through the Caribbean Championship. SMALL SPOILER: The film ends as the team does attend the World Series in Williamsport, Pennsylvania. Most surprisingly--through it all, the boys maintain a centered equilibrium and a sense of fun.

A highly inspiring and cinematic film. The story is great and I really became interested in all of the characters. I think it would be a geat film for anyone, but especially for kids involved in any athletics. I hope that Aumont has another out soon. I highly recommend this film.

This really is an eye-opening look into the world of little league baseball and the amazingly talented individuals that come from a small island. It proves that great teams don't always come from big cities with greatest facilities. I'll watch these guys play rather than pros. This IS baseball.
