Nothing was going to stop Roy Hobbs from fulfilling his boyhood dream of baseball stardom. In this inspiring fable that begins when 14-year-old Hobbs fashions a powerful bat from a fallen oak tree, Hobbs soon impresses major league scouts with his ability.

But a meeting with a mysterious woman shatters his dream. Years pass and Hobbs reappears as an older rookie for the New York Knights. Roy proves himself when his extraordinary hitting saves an important game.
