I remember that movie as a kid, it came on during a weeknight and I think it was a 2 part movie. Cant say I remember too much more about it tho. I thought it was cool that a guy played with one arm but I never gave him much thought until I read that article. Very interesting piece.

"I have the ultimate respect for Whitesox fans. They were as miserable as the Cubs and Redsox fans ever were but always had the good decency to keep it to themselves.
