Jeff [Santo] said he purposely avoided taking a son's perspective, which leaves him without much perspective at all.

You don't have to be a fan of Ron Santo, the Cubs or even baseball to appreciate this warm and winning tribute to Jeff Santo's dad.

The problem with the movie for anyone but Cub crazies is that son Jeff gives us no perspective.
