Storyline

Soul Of The Game, Satchel Paige and Josh Gibson are the greatest players in the Colored leagues, and everyone expects that one of them will make the leap to the Major Leagues, now that there is talk of integration. But, unexpectedly, it’s the rookie with the army record, Jackie Robinson, that gets tapped to be the first.
The soul of baseball
 
The soul of the game is a movie that follows around 3 prominent negro league baseball players with Satchel Paige, Josh Gibson and Jackie Robinson. Branch Rickey is looking to integrate the Dodgers but is looking for just the right guy to do it, he chooses Robinson who at the time didn’t have as much notoriety as the other two. But he didn’t have as much baggage as Gibson and a lot younger then Paige and Rickey felt that Robinson had the background to handle all of the heckling far better then either of the other two.

Excellent performances by everyone involved and the movie tells a good story about how the game of baseball and conversely all sports and if you think about it the whole world was changed in the process. If you it wasn’t for the success of the movie you wouldn’t have had Jim Brown in the NFL or Bill Russell in the NBA.

if you are into baseball……
 
This is a great movie. With accurate depictions of Satchel Paige, John Gibson, and Jackie Robinson, this is one of the unsung great baseball movies of the mid 90’s

Great performance by Delroy Lindo as Satchel Paige and a good story line.. If you are a baseball fan you will love this movie, if you aren’t you should watch it to become informed about some trials faced by African-American ballplayers.

As entertainment, “Soul of the Game” deserves an “A.” As a historical document, it is about a “C.” That’s “C” as in “see it.”
