Worried sick about his son, Bobby gets his first chance to bat in the second inning. He makes the hit, but the ball is caught on the fly. 'Out!' Sitting anxiously in the news box with Manny (John Leguizamo) and the police, Jewel (Ellen Barkin) receives a call from Gil. She tries to keep him on the line for a trace, but he hangs up too quickly. However, from the background noise, Jewel can tell Gil is somewhere in the stadium. Meanwhile, police have traced the knife to Gil's son, who tells him that his dad likes to take him to the old Stadium in the Sky's our Little League park, so a team is sent there to search for Sean. Bobby gets his second chance to bat in the eighth inning, but the catcher signals the Padre's pitcher to walk him. When Bobby figures out what the pitcher is doing, he angrily tells him to pitch the ball over the plate and tries to hit again, but rain has begun to fall and the umpire calls for a rain delay. When play resumes, Bobby gets two more pitches, striking out on them both. In the pouring rain, the pitcher throws a third time. This time Bobby hits it and starts to run. First base...second base...third base...and slides home safely, but the umpire calls 'Out!' Gil begins to argue with the umpire until he recognizes 'Curly' behind the mask. They go hand-to-hand, but Bobby wants only to know where Sean is. Gil won't say, wanting to pitch the ball to Bobby, like they did the other night on the beach. He backs up to make the pitch, but what he's holding is a knife. 'Now do you care...just a little bit?' Gil asks. When he moves to toss it, security fires on him. Rather than reveal the whereabouts of Bobby's son with his dying breath, Gil says, 'A simple thank you would have been nice.' Bobby immediately joins the police at the Stadium in the Sky and finds Sean alive and well. The final scenes are a montage of newspaper articles about Bobby, a collection of bobble heads and jerseys, and an old newspaper article about how little Gil Renard hit the homer that won his Little League team the city championship.
