he gave an interview . . . to get Ray to drive up and get him.
I see but as soon as Ray put his hand out and said "I'm Ray Kinsella" instead of shutting the door Terrance should have known why he was there.
I think MY point however is at the ballfield, Mann says he gave an interview for Ray to come up and get him.
Ebbets Field was demolished in 1960 so the interview in question most likely took place 20 to 30 years before this movie even takes place so it's not strange that he doesn't remember giving such a specific interview.
