Storyboard Text

  • BEANBALL
  • Jacob Stremming
  • By: Gene Fehler
  • This is Luke "Wizard" Wallace and his best friend Andy Keller talking about Luke's dream. It says "'This is our year, Andy. I'm sure of it. I had this dream last night.' 'Okay, Wizard. Let's hear it.' 'I dreamed it was Awards Night. Coach Hucklebee was holding up a big trophy: State Champs. There were two little statues on top. One was you and one was me. Co-MVPs.'"
  • This shows Coach Hucklebee having a meeting with his players after practice preparing for their big game against Compton. In the novel he says "I'm one lucky fellow, to be able to coach at Oak Grove. Not only do they have a great baseball tradition, but I've got a great bunch of kids to work with."
  •  This is right after Luke is hit by the baseball during the game against Compton. In the novel, the ump says "Oh, I've heard plenty of pitches hit a helmet. But this... this fastball, up and in. This one hit bone, right in the face. Not even a scream or a grunt from the kid. He went down like he was shot." 
  • After Luke is hit with the baseball in the face he was taken to the hospital and put in ICU. He broke some bones in his face and had swelling in his brain. In the novel, Luke says "My Face. Sometimes it's on fire. Sometimes it's not even there. Do I have a nose? Lips? Eyes? I can't see. I can't even raise my eyebrows." 
  • This is towards the end of the novel and Luke realizes he can still be successful in sports with one eye and he's taking a lap around the bases. Andy Keller his best friend is watching in the shadows and says "He was standing at home plate when I got there. I stayed in the shadows where he couldn't see me and watched as he slowly walked to first base. He stepped on it and went on to second. Then he kept going, right out into center field."
