Late Life: The Chien-Ming Wang Story is a 2018 Taiwanese-American documentary directed by Frank W Chen. The film follows the latter years of professional baseball pitcher Chien-Ming Wang, the first and only Taiwanese to be signed by the New York Yankees, as he struggles to make it back into the Major Leagues after a series of career-changing injuries. It is a story of a man who is unwilling to give up and unable to let go, as told by those closest to him, examining his roles as an international player, a father, a son, and a reluctant national icon.
Late Life was the first article about a film that I wrote for Wikipedia. Director Frank W Chen sent me a rough draft for the copy and links to a variety of articles about the film. Using established articles as templates, I built an entry that covered the film synopsis, production, and reception. I added the movie poster, an awards table, and other pertinent details. The published article included 26 citations of local and national news coverage, correctly formatted and referenced. The director was so pleased with the work that he hired me to write his own Wikipedia article.
