    • (Opening Narration)
      Narrator: It’s been said that the body is the means through which an athlete can best reveal the dynamic potential of the human spirit. But what happens when the means to that expression is injured beyond repair? Meet Ed Handler, a once-prominent player in the big leagues, a man who’s never resolved himself to his faith as a non-participant, who will soon be forced to bat in the Twilight Zone.

    • (Closing Narration) Narrator: Ed Handler, Monty Hanks. To some, a mere face on a trading card but to a special friend, he is an eternal boy of summer. An athlete who found himself drafted by a unique team in a league that plays its games, in the Twilight Zone.
