Chasing 3000 was grand -- such a celebration of Clemente's character and compassion and how it inspires others. These two brothers were so real and the actors poignantly played their characters. They were human in their responses to the challenges in their lives and how they supported each other. Integrity and love prevail. The "accidental heroes" that help them along the way remind us how we all long to be heroes ourselves. That's why Clemente grabs our admiration. He revealed the triumph of the human spirit in so many ways - his enormous talent, humility and compassion for others on and off the field. C3K would be such a cool movie to have in the theaters this summer. I could see whole Little League teams going to see it together. Iloved the music. C3K did a great job in capturing the period.
