It’s that time of the year. Major League Baseball season is here, and that means it’s time to discuss Kevin Costner in “For Love of the Game.”
It’s coming up on the 20th anniversary of the iconic baseball/love story that takes place during Billy Chapel’s (Costner) attempt to pitch a perfect game at the legendary Yankee Stadium. The beleaguered Detroit Tigers are winding down their season as the mighty New York Yankees are on the verge of clinching the AL East and making a World Series run.
Chapel is at a crossroads in his career and life as he struggles with the likelihood that the only life he has ever known will never be the same on the diamond and in his love life with Jane Aubrey (Kelly Preston).
T.J. and Jay revisit the capper of Costner’s baseball trifecta that began with “Bull Durham” followed by “Field of Dreams” and break down the movie that includes flashbacks to what brought Chapel to where he is today, on the precipice of baseball immortality.
Sit back, relax and join us for 1999’s “For Love of the Game.”
