79 - The Rookie
A promise is a promise, and that's exactly what Jim Morris, a high school baseball coach, had with his down-and-out team. If they made it to the championships, he would resurrect his baseball career and try out for the Major Leagues. Although he has a wicked fastball, he's in his mid-thirties with an injured shoulder. As fate would have it, his team holds up their end of the bargain, and Morris finds himself to be the oldest rookie on the field. It's a true story and 2002 Disney film that shows heart and gives inspiring hope to anyone who thinks that their dream is over. The Rookie proves that anything is possible.
