“MR. BASEBALL” (1992): A Forgotten Classic …or… A Guilty Pleasure???

PERHAPS BOTH!?!?!

Possibly.

πŸ˜‰

TOM SELLECK Is "MR. BASEBALL" (1992)

I’m Fairly Certain An Argument Can Be Made To Go Either Direction On This One.

Here’s A Couple Quickie Questions For Ya’z:

#1.) IS “MR. BASEBALL” An Oscar Winning MASTERPIECE?

No.No It’s Not.

#2.) IS “MR. BASEBALL” Perfectly FUN And ENTERTAINING, Regardless Of Who You Are??

JEEBUS HARRY, I Sure HOPE So.

#3.) Does MY ENTIRE FAMILY Have A Long-Term CRUSH On MR. TOM SELLECK???

YOU HAVE NO IDEA!

That’s A River That Runs DEEP!

VERY VERY VERY DEEP!
