Living amidst the gritty poverty of 1957 Monterrey, Mexico, a rag–tag group of boys from the wrong side of the tracks discovers the joy of sandlot baseball under the guidance of Cesar, an aspiring Major League Coach thwarted by discrimination.
Armed with the dream of playing a real Little League game, the young players defy a total lack of resources, disapproving parents, and widespread prejudice to score their first Little League victory and find themselves at the beginning of a once-in-a-lifetime journey.
Relying on their faith, a warm-hearted priest and their love of the game, the nine players and their coach embark on an incredible, record-breaking winning streak that leads them across the border to America, and all the way to the 1957 Little League World Series where a miracle will cement their place in history and change their lives forever.
This is an inspiring movie about a Mexican baseball team who need a coach. They find Cesar, who was unfairly let go from a major league team in the U.S. They overcome many obstacles to make it to the Little League World Series. This is based on a true story. The reason I gave it three stars is because it was boring to watch and not worth the price. It is a shame because the story itself is good.
