The Hollywood giant is in Chicago next week to promote his movie The Conspirator.
Redford starred as Roy Hobbs in The Natural. In the movie, Hobbs, a player for the fictitious Brooklyn Knights, hit a homer that shatters the lights at Wrigley Field. However, that scene was actually filmed in Buffalo's War Memorial Stadium.
In real life, before his acting career, Redford was a baseball player and earned a baseball scholarship to the University of Colorado as a pitcher.
