Quotes

Chuck Ireland: Year ago in the old Forbes Field... Ya ever seen a game in Forbes Field? The Pirates were playing the Cardinals and there's this foul ball that goes into the stands along the Right Field line. Clemente, he can't quite reach it. This man, he caught it and he felt all good and fuzzy and happy y'know and then this really big burly guy next to him, reaches over and wrestles it away from him. So between innings, Clemente, he comes over and he gives the man another ball. Up until that day, Stan the ...

At the Premiere
6 May 2007 | by archercomSee all my reviews

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.
