After spending five years in the minor league baseball with the Baltimore Orioles’ farm system, Shelton went on to earn an MFA degree to enter the world of film directing. Best known for making movies about sports, Bull Durham was his most successful film. The 1988 film was first entitled A Player to be Named Later, a romantic comedy that surprisingly became a box-office hit. Shelton earned a best-screenplay Oscar nomination in 1988.
