Major League Baseball taking kids out to see “42"
But don’t worry, they’ll have them home before curfew:
When I went to a preview screening of “42" there were a couple dozen youth baseball players -- I assume Babe Ruth level -- in uniform in the theater. I assume that was an extension of some sort of marketing initiative aimed at teenagers. I think the movie would work pretty well in an educational context, actually, given that it’s more or less straight-up without any distracting, invented subplots. Strong language, yes, but nothing that isn’t historically accurate nor anything teenagers haven’t heard before.
