Highly Recommended! September 17, 2011
Reviewer: Aussie Liz from Boston, MA  
Touching the Game goes where that other Cape Cod League movie, "Summer Catch" didn't - right to the heart of this sporting tradition, giving the viewer an insightful and first hand look at the history of this talent producing league.
The doco features interviews with everyone from fans and officials to major league players (Nomar Garciaparra, Mo Vaughn and Darin Erstad, to name a few), whose careers began with the Cape Cod Summer League. It goes behind the scenes to show that a player's summer is more than an on the field experience.
The aerial shots of the Cape coastline and ball parks are amazing! You don't have to be from New England, or even love or know a lot about baseball, to appreciate this film and the story it has to tell.

Highly recommend it!

Reviewer: Megan Panek  
My husband and I loved Touching the Game! It was a hit for a gift. I bought a copy for my uncle as well. I know he will enjoy it, as we are all big baseball fans and love going to the games on the Cape. I would suggest this DVD to everyone.

a fine example of baseball as Americana. September 17, 2011
Reviewer: Jim Luttrell of The New York Times, 7/23/04  
With its town teams, amateur players and beautiful setting, the Cape Cod League offers a fine example of baseball as Americana. "Touching the Game" offers some laughs and some tears and plenty of warm and fuzzy moments in its 1 hour 39 minutes...But the film also offers plenty of baseball for the most interested fan.

best work ever produced representing the League.. September 17, 2011
Reviewer: Ron Conte, Ex. Dep. Comm., CCBL  
You are to be congratulated on this fine piece of art. Your depiction of what takes place every summer on our beloved Cape Cod...The CCBL, is the best work ever produced representing the League, and the extras DVD on the Cape in general is very gratifying. I encourage anyone who loves baseball to purchase this...it is truly representative of the number one NCAA sanctioned College Summer Baseball League in America. At $20 it is a real bargain and a keeper of baseball memorabilia.
