Transcript for Former college baseball player returns to the field after 50 years
Finally tonight, "America strong." Reporter: At Cole park in Dallas, 74-year-old frank Miller is showing he still has the stuff. Working on his fastball and building his own field of dreams. I guess this has been inside of me for some time. Reporter: After 50 years, the former high school and college hurler is back on the field playing catch with some new friends he met in a most unusual way. I'm loving it. Reporter: It all started with a baseball book, a Christmas present he received from his wife. He's walking around the house with a baseball like 24/7. It was crazy. I said, Alice, I got to work on my cutter grip. And I knew he was just itching to get out. Reporter: Wondering what to do, Alice turned to an app. It's called next door and she posted this -- quote, my 74-year-old husband would like to have a partner to throw the ball with. Like a line drive, the post took off. The replies pouring in. This one reading, I would love to have a catch. Another, count me in. I was shocked by the amount of the response. Nice to meet you guys. Reporter: Days later, more than a dozen showing up. Retirees, former players working from home, even a few from the local high school baseball team. And the joy that these guys from the high school kids to the 74-year-olds, were all just laughing and talking. There, we go. Reporter: Social media may have brought them to the park, but it's the love of the game that's keeping them here. There's just something about having a game of catch with another person. And there is something about it that's beautiful. Reporter: We totally agree. Our thanks to WFAA on that story, beautifully shot, by the way.
