In Part 3 of Mr. Hardball, the boys are trying out at practice on a hot day. Coach Jessie Lee is playing Catcher with Ken Ott, aka Mr. Hardball, on the mound. That’s when the heckling starts. Gabe Dalessandro shouts out rude and offensive remarks at the boys, to which Jessie says, The sun is out and so are my guns. Do you really want to test me? This gets our heckler to back down, and Ken asks the Coach’s permission to try him out.
