(mbc.net) Farm boy Roy Hobbs is the best baseball player anyone has ever seen. His bat, handmade from the wood of a tree felled by lightning, is magic in his hands.
But before his career can start, the mysterious Harriet Bird inexplicably shoots him, side-lining him for more than a decade.
Fifteen years later, Hobbs returns to play for the New York Knights but coach Pop Fisher begrudgingly accepts the aging rookie.
Fisher is as surprised as the rest of the team when Hobbs knocks the ball out of the park time and again.
However, when the politics of business get in the way, Hobbs has to make some life-changing decisions.
