Kids say (2 ):

This faith-based movie is a family-friendly watch that's packed with positive messages. Running the Bases is also sure to capture baseball lovers' attention with its realistic portrayal of the sport. The plot sparks laughter, tears, and a feeling of sentimentality. Running the Bases is also thought-provoking and could lead families to important conversations about just how far people are willing to go for their faith.
