The Homerun King is a character in the video game Diabolical Pitch. When the guidance member ponders about fixed games of sports, Nigel McAllister recounts the story of the Homerun King, who promised a hospitalized child that he would hit a home run the next day if the child would keep dreaming and continue living. McAllister was the pitcher in this game, however he refused signs to throw straight and instead tossed breaking balls, to the Homerun King's chagrin. McAllister justified that professional players give children "something to dream about" and the Homerun King's promise would have no value if the game was fixed.
