My hubbie and I are suckers for "sports movies" -- in fact, that's one of the very few things we agree on. But anyway, I was excited to watch this movie, and it didn't disappoint. It is a feel good baseball movie, about a coach who "discovers" (by obvious Providence) a young man with an uncanny ability to pitch a baseball. The young man also has Asperger's syndrome. This makes for a charming, feel-good, and family-friendly movie that will make you fall in love with the characters, while making you fall in love with baseball all over again.
Luke Schroder, son of famous child star Rick Schroder, gives a noteworthy performance of an 18-year-old young man with Asperger's. He is believable and absolutely adorable. Here's the trailer so you can see for yourself.
