Batter up!  From comedy to drama, there's something for everyone on this list. If baseball history is more to your liking try one of the Library's documentaries on the national pastime. And if you just want to tweak your fastball or improve your batting stance, try one of our instructional dvds.

Matthau is a grumbling beer-guzzling former minor-league pitcher who gets roped into coaching a band of half-pint misfits somewhat loosely called a team.

An unlikely friendship ignites between two baseball players. One is the team's ace pitcher and social charmer; the other is the catcher, a farm boy from Georgia who lacks sophistication. During their last season together, the two men grow in manhood and respect for themselves and each other.

When Nottingham announces a brand-new hotel, built on an existing school's property, he makes his future son-in-law, Kendall, manager. Skeeter's sister Wendy, has to leave town for a job interview and asks him to alternate looking after her two children Patrick and Bobbi, with Wendy's colleague, Jill.

It is undeniable that Howe helped Detroit earn the moniker of Hockeytown and, as a testament to his popularity in the US and his home country of Canada,  Howe will be immortalized as the namesake for the Gordie Howe International Bridge to be built adjacent to the Ambassador Bridge over the Detroit River. This great athlete and hero to many will not be soon forgotten. If you would like to know more about his legacy, please check out the following materials.

Mr. Hockey : my story by Gordie Howe

Hockey great Gordie Howe retired after 25 winning seasons with the Detroit Red Wings. But he realized that retirement just didn't work for him. When his sons were drafted to the Houston Aeros he came out of retirement to join the team! He was written off by many, who thought he was too old to be playing competitively. Through hard work, perseverance, and the loving support of his wife and family, he and his sons managed to prove the critics wrong by winning several championships for the team.
