The Unbelievable True Story of Baseball's Oldest Rookie | Jim Morris | Goalcast
Jim "The Rookie" Morris "The Rookie Movie, Dennis Quaid, Disney, & Addiction"
I'm Jim Morris
You may know me as "The Rookie"
Eleven years after retiring from baseball, I gave a little speech to my high school team about the importance of dreams and hard work, in that very moment they challenged me to pursue my own unfulfilled dream of pitching in the major leagues if they made it to the playoffs. When the Reagan County Owls in Big Lake, Texas, won the district title, I kept my promise and the rest is cinematic history.
Disney's "The Rookie"
My story was so inspiring that Disney made it a movie.
This heartwarming and unforgettable Disney blockbuster about chasing your dreams and keeping your promises was nominated for a Critics Choice Award, won an ESPY for “Sports Film of the Year," Sports Illustrated magazine voted The Rookie one of the “five greatest baseball films ever made," and won a CAMIE award for character and morality in entertainment.
