“The Yankles is home run!”
Winner of nine film festival awards, THE YANKLES is anything but your typical baseball movie. Starring Don Most (Ralph Malph in “Happy Days,” The Great Buck Howard) and Bart Johnson (High School Musical franchise), THE YANKLES slides into homes on June 5 on Blu-ray and DVD from Magnolia Home Entertainment.
When a down-and-out ex-baseball player, Charlie Jones (Brian Wimmer), needs to meet his community service hours as a coach and no one wants him, it takes an obscure orthodox yeshiva baseball team to get him to see the light. The humorous match made in heaven has both Charlie and a group of aspiring rabbis reaching unexpected triumphs, which results in entrance to the college world series. With the championship victory in sight, will the Yankles and Charlie Jones be able to overcome their differences and achieve the ultimate grand slam victory?
