Stuck in a Cage: Things were looking bad for Greg Minton in 1988. His knees ached and his arm wasn't what it used to be. He was sick of baseball and the life it had made for him. He was getting old, and if he didn't go through a metamorphosis, he knew he would fade into the dark recesses of humanity. So Minton took a risk. He signed up for a risky, revolutionary surgery, putting his life on the line. At the same time, a young actor was in a similar predicament. He had talent, but he didn't have "the look," and this, in his mind, made his life meaningless. The young actor, too, signed up for the risky, revolutionary surgery. The two men, the baseball player and the actor, met on a Thursday. By Saturday, Minton had a new face and a new life, and the young actor had a bright future ahead of him.
