The movie was about a planned murder at a ‘fictional’ World Series between the Houston Astros & the Oakland Athletics... (I played Sal Bando, the 3rd Baseman for the A’s) - also, players from the Houston Karl Young College (summer) League were used as other Athletics’ players... (Real ‘Houston Astros players’ were used in the making of this movie, as well)
