I'm Jim Morris
You might know me as "The Rookie"
Eleven years after retiring from baseball, I gave a pep talk to my high school team about the importance of dreams and hard work. At that very moment, they challenged me to pursue my own unfulfilled dream of pitching in the major leagues...if they won the district championship I would try out for an MLB team. 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
The story so inspiring, 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.
