Scenes I Love: The Final Home Run From The Natural


I love baseball and I love my Texas Rangers.  Josh Hamilton may say that I don’t live in a “baseball town,” but I know that, whether my team is winning or losing, I will always be there cheering them on.

Baseball is known as being “America’s past time” because it’s the oldest sport to have been played in this country.  Football may get more attention but baseball, with its emphasis on teamwork and personal sacrifice, is the sport the epitomizes the American ideal.

There have been some great films made about baseball.  This scene that I love comes from The Natural.  This is a scene that captures the glory and the magic of the game of baseball.
