Everyone's Hero Directed by a Hero

Am I the only one surprised to discover that the new animated baseball fantasy film Everyone's Hero -- about a boy who rescues Babe Ruth's talking bat (voiced by Whoopi Goldberg), with the help of a talking baseball (voiced by Rob Reiner) -- was the last film to be directed by Christopher Reeve, who died two years ago? I was further surprised to discover that he and his wife Dana Reeve -- who died earlier this year -- also co-produced the film, and that she was one of the voice talents. It makes sense that this film, which encourages children to "never stop swinging," was directed by a man who lived by those words.
