Strand Releasing has acquired all North American rights to Andrew Muscato’s baseball documentary.

Branca’s Pitch chronicles the friendship between former Brooklyn Dodgers pitcher Ralph Branca and ghost writer David Ritz as the former struggles to relate his life story and in particular his controversial role in the 1951 National League Pennant defeat to the New York Giants.

Muscato negotiated the deal with Jon Gerrans of Strand Releasing, which plans a digital and DVD release in the autumn.
