"The Buster Posey Story" continued on Thursday, but by this point in the plot you have to wonder whether the screenwriters might be laying it on a little thick.

"It's like a movie," closer Brian Wilson said way back in 2010, when the opening credits were just starting to roll. "Like 'The Buster Posey Story' or something."

In the most recent scene, our hero - clean-shaven, wearing a crisp plaid shirt and holding his adorable twins - interrupts a charity event at his mother's school in rural Georgia to accept the National League Most Valuable Player award. The honor comes a few weeks after Posey led his team to a second World Series win and about 18 months after he sustained a potentially career-ending injury.

Along the way, he caught a perfect game, won the NL batting title and hit a grand slam to rescue his team from playoff elimination. Now Posey must find room in a trophy case that already includes an NL Rookie of the Year award, a Silver Slugger, the Hank Aaron Award, the Willie Mac Award and NL Comeback Player of the Year.

And he's just 25 years old.

Too far-fetched?

If Hollywood were actually involved in this production, most hard-bitten producers would pass on the script. Too corny. Too unbelievable. At the very least, can we have the guy accept his award while in a glitzy nightclub or a flashy mansion instead of at a school fundraiser?

Posey, seeing the potential conflict on the award schedule, never asked if he could back out of the annual fundraiser for the Transitional Learning Center in Leesburg, Ga. His mother, Traci, teaches at the school for students with disciplinary and academic issues who haven't succeeded in other settings. Tickets for the dinner, billed "Come 'Steak' a Claim for Education," were $10. Raffle tickets were $1.

"I figured we could make it work one way or the other," Posey said. "It turned out great having more family and friends around."
