The reason why baseball movies will never get it right is because no amount of clever CGI can ever replicate what we saw from Josh Hamilton, a real life Roy Hobbs, last night at the Stadium. I still feel buzzed.

My wife and I always watch the home run derby. She doesn't watch a lot of baseball, but this is a tradition for us.

By the time Braun was done, she was ready for bed; I was pretty tired myself. But I had told her all about Hamilton, and so she decided to see what this guy who had been on drugs and gotten off them could do.

My wife and I were both instantly awake, marveling at what Hamilton was doing. My wife likes baseball ("tolerates it" might be a more accurate description), but I have never seen her attention so riveted before.

We aren't going to forget that derby for a long, long time.

This was the only derby my wife and I missed as work got in the way. We watched the replay of what Hamilton did on MLB.COM but it wasn't the same. He is one of the greatest stories of my lifetime and I've seen quite a bit of baseball.

Shame he's doing it for Texas now instead of the Rays.
