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.
To be honest, It's not a super fancy movie but it's absolutely a GREAT one telling the true story of a significant Taiwanese baseball player - Chien-Ming Wang.
I am not a baseball fan, so I didn't really know his story before I watched the movie; however, I literally feel/understand his frustration when I saw the movie - He was trying so hard to prove he could still make it, for YEARS, and he didn't quit before he reached his limitation. I wasn't a fan of Chien-Ming Wang, but now I am.
It simply represents the Taiwanese spirit, and Wang's story encourages me to keep fighting for my dream and NEVER give up. You can find tons of inspiring stories out there, but it's not that easy to find a true one that makes you feel 'This is real, and I am gonna fight for my life too'.
