“BOT­TOM OF THE 9TH”

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - View From The Couch -

Joe Man­ganiello was among the pro­duc­ers of this base­ball-themed drama, in which he also stars with his sig­nif­i­cant other, “Mod­ern Fam­ily’s” Sofia Ver­gara. He plays a on­ce­promis­ing sports prospect whose hopes were de­railed by cir­cum­stances that landed him in prison for two decades. Now out of jail, he de­ter­mines to set his life back on its right course – which in­cludes pur­su­ing an­other chance for glory on the base­ball di­a­mond. De­nis O’Hare, Michael Ris­poli, Vin­cent Pa­s­tore (“The So­pra­nos”) and Burt Young (“Rocky”) also ap­pear. DVD ex­tra: “mak­ing-of” doc­u­men­tary. ★★★
