In preparation for this year’s Tribeca Film Festival, Tribeca and ESPN are partnering up to showcase a classic baseball film at the Tribeca/ESPN Sports Film Festival on Saturday, May 5. It's up to the fans to choose which film will be shown on the big screen by voting at the Tribeca Film Festival website
This competition will be brought alive as your favorite ESPN sports writers and announcers will participate in the debates over these match-ups with heated commentary, so continue to check in to see how your favorite film is measuring up. There will also be forums for voters to participate in the online dialogue – you can even lobby for your favorite!
Voting begins now and runs through March 26, and the competition will be laid out in a March Madness-style tournament-- complete with seeding and various rounds of play. The champion will be crowned on April 25, opening day of the Tribeca Film Festival, and the winner will be screened on May 5 at the Sports Festival.
