Fever Pitch follows Ben Wrightman, a devoted Boston Red Sox fan. His passionate commitment to the team strains his relationship with Lindsey Meeks, a corporate executive unfamiliar with baseball. When Ben attempts to sell his precious season tickets to demonstrate his love for Lindsey, she intervenes in a dramatic game-time gesture, leading to their touching reunion and eventual marriage, all set against the backdrop of the Red Sox’s historic win.

Directed by the Farrelly brothers and based on Nick Hornby’s novel, this 2005 American adaptation, starring Drew Barrymore and Jimmy Fallon, reimagines the original soccer-centric British narrative to spotlight baseball, culminating with the Boston Red Sox’s iconic 2004 World Series Championship.
