A true story about the legendary baseball pitcher Grover Cleveland Alexander. The film sensitively handles Alexander’s rise, fall and celebrated comeback at the 1926 World Series where he led the St. Louis Cardinals to victory over the New York Yankees. The Winning Team may tone down Grover’s alcoholism and says nothing about his epilepsy but moviegoers still gave it an enthusiastic thumbs up as a fitting tribute to the American sporting legend.
