After a pretty nondescript career spent mostly in the minor leagues, San Francisco outfielder Andres Torres became a key player in the Giants’ championship run last season.
Torres put up a .268/.343/.479 line, stole 26 bases and played fine defense at all three outfield positions. In August, it was revealed that Torres suffered from attention deficit disorder (ADD), a condition he was diagnosed with in 2002 but ignored until 2007. When he started taking medication, he started to focus better and improve.
In December, Torres revealed that he would be the subject of a documentary focused on his life, including both his condition and his rise from poverty in Puerto Rico.
“It’s about giving kids hope and never giving up,” Torres said of the film project. “You have to keep working hard. I want to be something positive, especially for kids with ADD. It’s a message for the kids.”
The film, called “Gigante,” is scheduled to be released in July, but there is a trailer out now, and it looks pretty interesting. Check it out below.
