Washington Post
It's a story with serious human drama that will make you think a little differently the next time you watch your favorite team take the field. Full Review
Andrew O'Hehir
While "Ballplayer" is certainly unsettling, must-see viewing for baseball fans - a nonfiction follow-up to Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck's outstanding 2009 feature "Sugar" - it's a vibrant tale, alive with color and texture, that's far more than a sports movie. Full Review

Slant Magazine
The doc is a sly, interesting achievement: It opens as an entertaining sports story and closes as a metaphor for government corruption. Full Review
Eric Hynes
Time Out New York
Essential, if artless, baseball exposé. Full Review

The Hollywood Reporter
Although there are numerous interviews with various people both directly involved with or peripheral to the action, the most compelling figure on display is a particularly articulate coach who proves all too determined to have his protégé succeed. The fact that he works strictly on commission is certainly no small element of his zeal. Full Review
