Moonlight Graham finally gets his shot

One of the saddest moments in Field of Dreams is when Archie “Moonlight” Graham has to give up his dream of playing with some of the biggest names in baseball to save Ray Kinsella’s daughter from choking on a hot dog.  And yet, Graham does it with only a slight amount of hesitation.  He knows that his true calling in life is to be a doctor.

It has freaked me out the past couple of games to see Jacoby Ellsbury playing for the Red Sox, and after just a moment of thought, I finally figured out why: Jacoby Ellsbury is Moonlight Graham!

Well, I’d best be getting home to bed.  Alicia Kelly will think I’ve got a girlfriend.
