Your friendly neighborhood CineVerse moderator visited the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown last week and got a chance to tour a pretty snazzy "Baseball at the Movies" exhibit. Many vintage posters and artifacts from celebrated baseball flicks were on display, including "Fear Strikes Out," "The Pride of the Yankees," and, of course, "The Natural."

In fact, here is a personal snapshot of some key props from that film that I took:

Speaking of "The Natural," The Oak Lawn Library will be showing this film in its lower level meeting room on Thursday, August 12 at 10 a.m. (for more details visit

"The Natural" (1984) is the story of an average baseball player comes out of seemingly nowhere to become a legendary player with almost divine talent. Starring Robert Redford and Glenn Close. Based on a novel by Bernard Malamud. Rated: PG. 144 min.
