NotesDuring WWII a baseball player (Pete Gray, outfielder for St. Louis Browns) plays with only one arm lost as a child and becomes inspiration for a young boy also with one arm. Gray went into sport after his brother was brain damaged boxing. Initially he got his first job in minor league with the Memphis Chicks because of his oddity value. He proves his worth and with the drain of many major league players to the war he earns promotion. The boy, Nelson Gary Jnr.., who he encourages also became a minor league player.
