Based on True Events. The Dalton family moves to the mining town of Rupland, where baseball is that of a religion. The surrounding counties help make up the storied "Summer League," where the best baseball in the country is played. In Rupland, little boys dream of donning the orange and black of their idols, the Rupland Hawks. The family's three sons: Jack, Johnny and Joe, become intertwined with the game and the town's issues that tear them apart. A true ballplayer, a rebel and a storyteller, the brothers battle through Rupland's hardships of death, decline and war. From Little League to the Summer League, the Dalton boys grow to follow different paths in life that change the course of their family and the town forever. The Sons of Summer tells the story of family, baseball and the American dream's glory and demise in this last gasp of small town America. Written by James Rigby
