The Impossible Return

Does a baseball team that is down by a score of 14 to 2 in the 7th inning have any prayer of winning? If history or experience is your judge, then the answer is no.

On Sunday, August 5th, 2001, the Seattle Mariners were on their way to a record setting season of 116 wins, and they had the Cleveland Indians down by 12 runs with just a handfull of outs left to get. The score was so high, many of the starters on both teams were lifted from the game for much needed rest. It was inconceivable that the Mariners would not take another win away on this Sunday evening.

You don't have to be an Indians fan to enjoy the final innings of this game. You don't even have to be a baseball fan to be inspired by it. Take a listen and look at the impossible return.

I have fixed several bugs, intro and conclusionary music, animated the base-runners, and added player photos since the first release of this movie.

You are right about the Indians, and they are going to get worse as the owner does not wish to spend money on offense anymore (he never would spend it on pitching).

But I disagree with you about it being boring. I think it's one of the most exciting comebacks I have heard, and the radio play-by-play guy makes even more exciting. I just heard clips from a bigtime comeback of the Chigago Bears this past weekend, but I'm not going to attempt another movie like this again. While the votes have been good to fair, the reviews have been rather disaproving.

Get this crap out of here man

This is really dumb. This might have been a good team but who needs to see the cartoon. Not worth watching unless you are a baseball nut. And even then not worth waiting for the dl.

That was the most worthless movie I've ever seen!

Wow, you can move text and play sounds! You definitely deserve to be on the top 50! This movie makes me want to puke. Baseball fans might've liked the game but who the fuck cares? The movie was horrible, it had no animation, and you had to click a fucking button again and again and again. Jocks can go to hell and you should get a baseball bat shoved up your ass.
