0039 Randy Newman – The Natural Soundtrack – Knock the Cover off the Ball @ 1:03

This movie gets me every time, especially this scene when it starts getting stormy out at the ballpark, and Roy gets the call from Pop to pinch hit for Bump late in the game. The music starts stirring as he approaches the plate, takes a couple warm up swings, and then waits for his pitch. Then at 1:03, right when a crack of thunder bellows out the rain starts coming down, Roy absolutely hammers the ball into the lights over right field. The ball gets so shredded, the fielders can’t even pick it up.

Triumph baby! And the music to match!

Knock the Cover off the Ball :50 – 1:40
