"THROW ME THE BALL, WILLIE!"
18 April 2001 | by (Cincinnati, Ohio) – See all my reviews

This was the quintessential Everybody Counts video about Hewitt, a special baseball fan, and his friend Willie. Nothing special as far as epic film making, but definitely one of those moments from elementary school you never forget.
