Once a victim, twice a saviour
After Aaron Hill is responsible for an error the 10th inning which lead to the Orioles going ahead 4-3. That is the point in the movie where the main character seems to lose all hope and is at rock bottom. Then a wise old friend (Cito Gaston) speaks to Aaron, and he is suddenly inspired to redeem himself.
In the bottom of the 10th, Aaron swings for the fences at the second pitch and ties the game with a solo home run. At that point, Hill begins to swing momentum in favour of the Blue Jays. His journey to redemption is almost complete.
In the following inning, Hill is once again in the spotlight close to the end of the movie. Time stands still as he cracks a single through the outfield, and Rod Barajas stomps on home plate and the Blue Jays win the game. The Blue Jays win the game! Everyone’s happy, especially Aaron Hill.
The story of the Blue Jays 4-3 win over the Orioles in 11 innings will soon be made into a full-length feature Disney film starring Zack Efron as Aaron Hill.
