Fastpitch is the story of 35 year-old New York artist, director Jeremy Spear, who longs for the athletic days of his college years. He finds the solution in joining a fastpitch softball league in Ashland, Ohio and the result is this spirited, humorous, human documentary.

Fastpitch (2000) Documentary, Sport | 25 August 2000 (USA) 7.4
Director: Jeremy Spear, Juliet WeberWriter: Fred Kaufman, Jeremy SpearStars: Ken Billingley, Tony Hunhoff, Shane HunuhunuSummary: Jeremy Spear is a noted sculptor and conceptual artist who has developed an estimable reputation on New York's downtown art scene. Spear is also an avid sports enthusiast who played shortstop on Yale's baseball team as they made the NCAA finals in the early 1980s. In the late 1990s, a friend asked Spear if he was interested in playing fast-pitch softball on a semi-pro team in Ohio, and soon he was introduced to what he calls "America's last barnstorming sport," which is far removed from both the casual amateur play of slow-pitch softball and the big money and glamour of major league baseball.
