Movie called Simon Birch

I saw a movie on WGN last Thursday night that I really enjoyed. The name of the movie was Simon Birch. I'm sure it's an old movie, but I had not seen it before. It was a touching movie about friendship with a little baseball mixed in.

Simon had a good friend named Joe. Joe's mom happens to get killed by a foul ball off the bat of Simon in a Pee Wee league game.

Simon is kid who physically handicapped and his most-prized possession is a set a baseball cards. Has anyone else seen this movie? Is this a good movie or am I just a sentimental old fool?
