Bang The Drum Slowly (1973)
Bruce Pearson (Robert De Niro) is a dedicated baseball player who's hiding a secret: He has Hodgkin's disease. His only confidante is the team's star pitcher, Henry Wiggin (Michael Moriarty), who covers for him as he faces not only a waning season but a slowly fading life. Vincent Gardenia received an Academy Award nomination for his role as the team's coach in this tearjerker based on Mark Harris's 1950s novel.
