Based on a true story.
Arthur Murphy, "Murph" (Dean Cain) is the coach of the River Rats, a minor league baseball team. He discovers a great pitcher in Mickey Tussler. Mickey has Asperger's syndrome, a form of autism. Murph convinces Mickey's parents to let him join the team and he really takes Mickey under his wing.
Most of the team is very supportive of Mickey. He also contributes to the team, both in terms of winning and by raising the team spirit and motivation.
A very entertaining, heartwarming and inspirational story. The whole family will enjoy this.
