I would say Hollywood couldn't make a movie about this, except it already did.
The movie was "The Rookie," starring Dennis Quaid. It was about a former phenom from Texas who blew out his arm, wound up coaching high school baseball and, years later, re-discovered his fastball and rode it all the way to the majors.
Say hello to Steve Delabar, boys and girls, who once pitched in Fort Wayne and who, when the season began, was substitute teaching in Elizabethtown, Ky.
He hadn't pitched in two years and had never played above Class A -- but the other night, he came on in the late going, shut down the Yankees, of all people, and earned his first MLB victory for the Seattle Mariners.
Fairy tale business.
