From the writer of RUDY and HOOSIERS comes the remarkable true-life story of Rickey Hill’s improbable journey to play Major League Baseball. Growing up impoverished in small-town Texas, young Rickey Hill shows an extraordinary ability for hitting a baseball, despite being burdened by leg braces from a degenerative spinal disease. His stern, pastor father (DENNIS QUAID) discourages Rickey from playing baseball to protect him from injury, and to have him follow in his footsteps and become a preacher. This faith-based sports film is an inspiring and entertaining family film!
