Calling Steven Spielberg

Sam Rice, a contemporary of Babe Ruth, was a man of unforgettable secrets, and a baseball Hall of Famer, though his interrupted beginning years resembled a classic bench warmer. His saga is much deeper than the fictional story "The Natural" - and one of the most dramatic in the history of sports figures - featuring his sudden departure from spectacular happenings in Morocco Indiana.
