After an incredible, record-breaking post-season, Randy Arozarena's story will reportedly be coming to a streaming service or theatre near you.
“Randy’s story is so inspirational – his journey grabs at your heart and this film will explore the triumphs of the human spirit when driven and focused,” Wonderfilm’s Bret Saxon said in a statement.
Production for the film is set to begin late in 2021. Brad Gann, known for his work on Invincible and Soul Surfer, will reportedly write the movie's screenplay.
At 19-years-old, Arozarena left his home in Cuba on a makeshift raft to Mexico. He flourished playing in the Mexican baseball league before catching the attention of scouts, later signing with the St. Louis Cardinals in 2016.
Arozarena was traded by the Cardinals to the Rays in January 2020 and was recalled by Tampa on Aug. 30. The 25-year-old later became a star in the post-season, passing Barry Bonds for the most home runs in a single post-season and breaking Derek Jeter's record for most hits by a rookie in a single post-season.
