Quotes

Kent Stock: Okay, its one and done, forever. South Clay is 31-8. The eight games they lost were when Reed Ellis wasn't in the rotation, he's pitching today. We all know he's being scouted by pro teams, but one player doesn't make a team.
[Sammy raises his hand]
Kent Stock: Sammy?
Sammy: He can if he throws 92 miles per hour coach.
Kent Stock: We win by playing Norway Baseball. 80% of this game is defense. We don't let anything out of the infield and we wait. Sooner or later, they'll make a mistake. Every person who's ever worn a Norway ...

One of the best baseball movies ever
26 April 2008 | by bfritch55See all my reviews

This is one of the best baseball movies I have ever seen. It is not only very inspirational but heartwarming and asks a very personal question that we must all answer-"what do you want to be remembered for."

Kent Stock takes a very difficult situation of having to motivate the players of Norway High School with them facing their final season of the baseball program, let alone, the final year of their high school ever existing again, and motivates his players to play up to their best potential in capturing an astounding record 20th state championship in Iowa baseball.

This movie should be shown to every high school baseball team whether they be a large, medium, or small school, as well as shown to every coach, no matter what level of athletes they coach.
