"They don't make baseball players like Moe Berg anymore. Judging by Aviva Kempner's authoritative and engrossing documentary "The Spy Behind Home Plate," they likely never did."
Kenneth Turan - LOS ANGELES TIMES

"From behind home plate to behind enemy lines, the story of Moe Berg, MLB catcher turned US spy, must be seen to be believed."
- MILWAUKEE BREWERS

"To encounter Moe Berg’s story is to become entranced with it."
