The movie "the rookie" was on TV last night. It reminds us all that baseball produces great stories.
It's about Jim Morris, the pitcher that made the Tampa Bay club as a 35-year-old rookie in 1999.
The game of baseball can be so great. So can the people that play it. Of course there are plenty of times when those people that play and run the sport show their flaws.
Many of us have had a life-long love affair with the sport. Some can pinpoint the exact moment when it all began.
