Ballplayer: Pelotero: In the run-up to the most important day of their lives, two young Dominican baseball players confront competition and corruption to achieve their big league dreams. For16-year-old Dominican baseball players, the only real chance to escape crushing poverty comes every July 2, the day they become eligible to sign professional baseball contracts. This documentary provides an intimate portrait of two prospects as they navigate the calculating, mercenary and often corrupt elements that surround major league baseball's recruitment of the island's top talent. THE MIGUEL SANO STORYBallplayer: Pelotero followed 16-year-old prospect Miguel Sano, a once-in-a-generation talent, as he navigated intense competition and corruption to sign with the Minnesota Twins for an astounding $3.15 million. But Miguel’s dreams didn’t stop there, and neither did ours. For the past three years we have been filming a sequel about Miguel’s road to the Bigs, and have learned that getting signed can be the easiest part for young, elite Dominican players. Sano has to grapple with the crushing pressure that comes with his preternatural talent. He faces a jarring acculturation to American life, a painful separation from his family and must navigate an increasingly complex web of professional entanglements that forces him to consider who his friends really are. We will tell, for the first time ever on film, the full and complete story of a major sports star’s rise from anonymity to superstardom. But first, we need your help to raise funding on Kickstarter to continue shooting his incredible story.…
