Description by OLDIES.com:
For ex-ballplayer Billy Wyatt (Mark Harmon), whose drive never matched his big-league prospects, the high point of his life was summer of 1964. Decades later, Billy returns home to recall the past - and the person who made it special.
Harmon and Jodie Foster star in Stealing Home, a bittersweet story "beautifully written a la Moonstruck" in which "you'll spend a couple of hours lost in a wonderful world" (Bill Cosford, Miami Herald). As a burnout seeking redemption, Chicago Hope's Harmon hits the mark as the older Billy, and the luminous Foster sparkles as Katie, the friend and mentor who vibrantly draws the loose ends of Billy's past and present together. Buoyed by a marvelous golden-oldies soundtrack, Stealing Home is a warm, wistful memory-lane journey.
Billy Wyatt (Harmon), a former high school and minor-league baseball baseball player receives a telephone call from his mother revealing that his former child-sitter, and later in his teens, his first love, Katie Chandler (Foster), has died. Wyatt returns home to deal with this tragedy reminescing over his childhood growing up with his father, Katie and best friend Alan Appleby. -- Description provided by TMDb
