Rusty Whitener's critically-acclaimed novel comes to the screen in this period baseball drama for the entire family. The year is 1974. The Robins are a Little League team with lots of spirit, but little hope of defeating the reigning champions, the Hawks. When young baseball prodigy Rafer tries out for the Robins, team leader Zack and his coach see a chance to beat the Hawks for the very first time. Meanwhile the Hawks aren't about to go down without a fight, and before the season is over Zach and his teammates will learn that there are far more important things in life than winning the championship. John Schneider and Grayson Russell co-star.
