Has anyone seen “Pastime”?

This movie just popped up on Netflix’s Instant Watch today. Here’s the description:

William Russ, Jeffrey Tambor and Ernie Banks star in this drama about 41-year-old minor league pitcher Roy Dean (Russ), an athlete at the twilight of his career who decides to mentor a rookie who’s obviously bound for greatness. But time is running out for Roy, and what he has to teach will have to be mastered before it’s too late.

According to the reviews, Banks is only in the movie briefly as a fan in the stands, and a few other baseball greats from the past make cameo appearances: Don Newcombe, Duke Snider, Harmon Killebrew, and Bob Feller.

So, is it worth 95 minutes of my life?
