MONTCLAIR/LITTLE FALLS, NJ - The Yogi Berra Museum and Learning Center will host a special screening of the acclaimed documentary feature “Fastball,” on March 22 by award-winning director Jonathan Hock.
The 90-minute film is a remarkable journey into the science of baseball’s signature pitch, featuring amazing footage and observations from current MLB stars and at least 20 Hall of Famers.
In a speed and statistic-obsessed sport, Hank Aaron, Nolan Ryan, Bob Gibson, Goose Gossage, Derek Jeter and new Yankee closer Aroldis Chapman are among those discussing how the magic of baseball boils down to the 396 milliseconds it takes a 100 mph fastball to reach home plate.
“Fastball,” was first presented at the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival by Hock, a 9-time Emmy Award-winner who is also known for his work in ESPN's 30 for 30 series.
Hock will do a Q&A after the screening, which begins at 7:30 p.m. Tickets: $15. To RSVP: call 973-655-6891 or 973-655-2378.
The Yogi Berra Museum and Learning Center is located on the campus of Montclair State University
