Plot: FEAR STRIKES OUT tells the courageous story of Red Sox outfielder Jimmy Piersall, who played seventeen seasons in the majors--with a lifetime batting average of .272-- while battling mental illness. Anthony Perkins' trademark intensity brings the ballplayer's nightmare to life and Karl Malden gives a strong performance as his overbearing, perfectionist father.
