I love this movie, but can’t really take much credit for it.  My friend Mike Tollin was the producer, and asked me, after they began shooting, for some dialogue help with a few of the climactic scenes.  After I was done, in lieu of payment, I had Paramount Studios build a batting cage at Pan Pacific Park in mid-city Los Angeles, for the kids who play baseball there.  Seemed appropriate.  And the cage is still there.
