There is hurt

And there is pain

We are bound

And broken

There are none

Without to stay

Secret things


I have known

The heavy hand

I am scarred

And scattered

I have heard

The very ones

Oh really matter

Come on,

put the cards in.


Come on,

batter up.

Let's go hide it.


Get on out here.

Let's go.

Batter up.

Uh-huh. Where do you

think you're going?

Who going

to be first?

I'll do it.

Yeah, you'd better.


Strike one.

Strike three. You're

out. You're done, son.

Be a man.


You're flinching.

Stay in there. Come

on, let's go. Ready?

Strike five.

That was way outside.

What are you swinging

at that for?

Come on, stay in there. Strike seven.

Strike eight.

Strike nine.

Strike ten.

Stay in the box.

Strike eleven.

Strike twelve.

Stay there.

Strike thirteen.

I'll stay here

all day, son.

Strike fourteen.

Strike fifteen.

You're watching it.

You stay there.

Strike sixteen.

Strike seventeen.


Strike eighteen,

you little sissy.

You're going

to cry now?

Is that what

I'm seeing?

Strike nineteen.

Let's do this, Cory.

Good afternoon,

Grizzlies' fans.


to Grizzly Stadium.

And today's ballgame between

your Denford Grizzlies

and the Peninsula Pilots.

Today is Young Life day

at the ball park.

If a Grizzly hits a home

run during today's game,

Young Life will be presented

with a check for $10,000.

Let's go, guys.

Here we go, guys.

Good luck.

It's time, guys.

Go Grizzlies.

Hey, Cory.

Hey, Helene.

Heard you were chatting up with

Capano at the fundraiser last night.

Oh, come on, Helene,

you're the only girI for me.

I'd better be.

He had to be really drunk to

think that was a good deaI. Please.

He'd eat his first born if

it meant signing a new player.

I don't think

I signed anything.

All right.

Don't forget. Home run

today. 1 OK for Young Life.


You think Cory will remember

that Carlos is down there?

No clue.

Or even

who Carlos is?

I don't know.

Tough conditions for the hitters

today. Sun shining down brightly.

And when you've got guys like Chris

Ashman and Brett Stevens on the mound

it's not at all

a surprise

that we have a scoreless game

with only five hits so far.

Cory Brand batting 3-79

leading the league.

And he appears to be a shoo-in for

another all-star game next month.


Open your eyes, Blue.

Cory's not going

to like that call.

It appeared to be high

and outside.

De Cruz gave Ashman

the call of strike one.

Strike two.

Strike two.

That was way outside. What

are you swinging at that for?

You're going

to your momma?

You need to go talk

to your momma now?

Get in the box.

Go, Cory.


And it gets away

from the left fielder.

Go, go, go,

go, go, go.

He's going to try

to score.

Slides and safe.

That's what

I'm talking about.

The Pilots are going

to appeal it.

And Cory Brand

has been called out.

What are you

talking about, Blue?

He storms out

of the dugout,

and gets right in the face

of umpire Vic Cruz.

He's going to be thrown out

for slamming down the helmet.

And the replay shows he

clearly missed third base.

So, Cory Brand about to

give his team the lead.

Answer you, Blue.

Why don't you cool off?

You're like your

brother Blue over there?

How did you not see that

standing right there?

What are you talking about

I ain't touch base, huh?

Touched it now! There

it is. There it is.

Get out of my face.

Play ball.

And evidently the young bat

boy, he's the honorary bat.

Oh, my gosh.

Hey, what's

going on, huh?

Doc, is he all right?

Not sure what

exactly happened.

Is he okay? Can you see him? I can't.

I'm on, I'm on. As Corey

Brand went into the dugout.

Oh, my gosh.

I think that's enough ice.

Your face is going to freeze.

Dad, I'm fine.

Oh, hey, babe. How are

you doing? He's all right.

I'm fine, I'm fine.

All right, all right.

Hey, guys.

I'm thinking about

sticking around.

What? Why?

I can't leave him

like this.

What can you possibly

do for him? I don't know.

Just talk.

Find out what's up.

Hey, dude, can I hold your icepack?

Just for a second, Tyler.

It's an official icepack.

Only players and people

on the team can use it.

And I need it.

Here, take it.

Dude, the whole stadium

was cheering for you.

I know.

I was like pshhh.

Oh, and then I went like, oh, yeah.

He's the only

brother I've got.

All right.

I love you.

I don't make it easy.


Hey, bro.

What's this,

a reunion?

Why, did she

tell you to come?

We should talk, Cory.

Talk about what?

What happened to you

out there today?

Showbiz, bro.

It's part of the game.

I talked

to your trainer.

Said your blood alcohoI was. 15.

Couldn't find my keys

in that condition,

let alone hit one

out of the park.

It's a gift.

What are you doing

talking to my trainer?

You need help, Cory.

Are we done here?

That kid

you elbowed today?

That's my son.

Karen and I adopted him out

of foster care two months ago.

You'd know that if

you read an emaiI or...

returned one

of my calls.

I'm sorry.

Want to go grab

something to eat?

You got fat.

Kick your butt.

That's without

a personaI trainer,

and I work

for a living.

Yeah, what are you,

mayor now?

District attorney.

Got my own

parking spot.

And a bathroom key.

Look at you, fancy pants.


How's Emma?

She's all right.

Been hard on her and Tyler
