Flashback: Real life and fiction in Hardball.


Christianity Today posted an article today on Bob Muzikowski, a Little League coach who works with kids from the projects in Chicago. At the bottom of that article, they link to an article that I wrote for BC Christian News seven years ago, comparing and contrasting Muzikowski’s book Safe at Home with the Keanu Reeves movie Hardball (2001), which was very, very loosely based on the league that Muzikowski co-founded.
