Troy's A Hit For Marlins Pitcher

Movie maker WOLFGANG PETERSEN was so thrilled to hear that top baseball star DONTRELLE WILLIS prepares for games by watching scenes from TROY, he sent him his own signed copy of the DVD.

FLORIDA MARLINS pitcher Willis revealed the film helps to inspire him before he takes to the pitch and steps up on the mound in a recent interview.

And that thrilled Petersen, who has received little praise for his flop 2004 movie, starring ORLANDO BLOOM and BRAD PITT, so he sent him his own copy of the film with a handwritten note.

Willis says, "He didn't have to do that. That's special."
