♦ Baseball coordinator Aimee McDaniel said of working on this movie: “We worked with Amy Adams for four or five days, and by the end of that time, she looked like she’d been catching baseballs her whole life. To have an actress of that caliber just throw herself into something like that made my job easy. And the rest of the cast was equally devoted.”

Character’s Quotes

• Can’t you understand that you sending me away wasn’t protecting me, it was rejecting me. And I’ve been working really hard to not let anyone else get close enough to me to do that again, and being alone really sucks.
