    For some reason, The Natural was one of my favorite movies when I was a kid. My Dad had a VHS copy of it and I must have watched it 30 times. I didn't know there were two books about it, and the 'real' story sounds more interesting than the movie. Thanks for posting this. I can't wait to read more about it.

    My friend the Cubs fan didn't seem too enthused that the possible end of "The Curse of Steinhagen" would lead Cubbies to World Series this season.
