  • The Rookie

    The Rookie is based on the life of Jimmy Morris, an aspiring baseball player who failed to make it into the big leagues as a young man. As a baseball coach in a small Texas town, he promises his players that if they win District, he will try out for a big league team again despite his age and injuries. When his players come through, Jimmy keeps his promise with startling results.

    Should the Rookie Be a Veteran in My Collection?…

    The Rookie is a fun feel–good drama that benefits from an excellent performance by Dennis Quaid and the fact that the core of the story really happened. The film teaches the value of hard work, persistence, and shooting for a dream. About the highest praise I can offer this kind of movie is that it doesn’t rely on cheesy sentimentality for its emotional kick, letting the characters and events drive the drama. Best of all, it’s the rare family friendly film! So get your baseball juices flowing and give The Rookie a spin.
