"The World Between Us" is a 10-part, hour-long series that follows the aftermath of a mass shooting where the fates of all parties involved - the killer, the victims, the victims' families, the media and the defense teams are intertwined.
The first and only Taiwanese player for the New York Yankees, Chien-Ming Wang held many titles: American League Wins Leader, World Series Champion, Olympian, Time 100 Most Influential, and The Pride of Taiwan. He had it all - until a 2008 injury forever altered the course of his career. LATE LIFE: The Chien-Ming Wang Story - named after the late sinking action on his signature pitch - follows the rise and fall of the international icon as he fights his way back into the Major Leagues through endless rehab programs and lengthy stints away from home, carrying the weight of the world on his battered shoulder. A poignant and intimate account of Wang's steadfast quest, LATE LIFE tells the story of a man who is unwilling to give up and unable to let go.
Authentic and inspiring behind-the-scenes story of a once superstar athlete
You really get to "meet" Chien Ming Wang in this documentary.
I've been a fan of him since the time I was living in Taiwan during his peak years as a NY Yankees Ace pitcher. Like most people, I knew of him as the celebrity athlete, "National Hero of Taiwan", "Pride of Taiwan", that we see on TV.
However, the movie does a great job of exposing the Chien Ming Wang as a normal human being going through struggles and adversities just like we all do in life.
The film takes us through his journey of his rise to success with the Yankees, but mainly focuses on the after-peak years of his careers in the minors, fighting to climb back into the big league. It is truly inspiring and great to learn of the humble and persistent side of him all because of his baseball dream.
