Or if the pitcher is Dennis Eckersley in his prime brought in to finish off a weak hitting Dodger team when up steps an ailing Kirk Gibson. He smacks it deep. I don't believe what I just saw. go crazy people go crazy.
Or Roy Hobbs goes 0 for 3 until he steps in against Youngberry, a Nebraska farmboy. There's a drive oh no he has broken wonderboy. Pick me out a winner Bobby. Bobby goes for his longest run ever. He waddles back with the Savoy Kid- stays around a while.
There's another drive- cue music, special lighting effect.
Fade to Cornfield where Hobbs plays catch with his son who lacking his father's influence never learned to throw a ball properly. *movie version only
