Storyline

Based on a true story. In 1957 a rag-tag, shoeless, poor group of kids from Monterrey, Mexico shocked the world by winning 13 games in a row and the Little League World Series in the only perfect game ever pitched in the Championship. These kids, led by their priest and a down-and-out former major leaguer embark on a journey through the southern US and up into Williamsport, PA for the Championship game. They encountered many adversities including nearly being deported and the bigotry that wouldn't allow them into certain restaurants or travel on certain buses. They never lost their faith and eventually captured the hearts of both nations. This is a heart-warming inspirational story in the tradition of "Rudy", "Hoosiers", "Coach Carter" or "Friday Night Lights". Written by John Bradly

Trivia

The film portrayed plays from Monterrey's eleventh game against Owensboro, Kentucky, but doesn't indicate the final score. The appendix of W. William Winokur's book "The Perfect Game" shows Monterrey defeated Owensboro by 3 to 0. See more »

Goofs

Contrary to the claims of the opening STL-Brooklyn archive footage-based game, Sal Maglie never pitched at Sportsman's Park in 1956. The only time he pitched vs. the St. Louis Cardinals in 1956 was August 5 at Ebbets Field in Brooklyn. See more »

Truth hearts, sometimes.
9 July 2011 | by jac7See all my reviews

I was fortunate to see the film, compliments of studio movie grille, and I was not disappointed.

I thought it was a classic "feel good" family movie. Yeah, it won't win any awards, but it will win over your heart.

For some that need "deeper" in a movie for it to be worthy of praise, forget a' bout' it.

It's simple and to the point, yeah, you know what's coming next, but that's alright, it's why we go the movies with our families!

Get it, watch it, enjoy it. Yes, just that simple.

I thought they did a good job of making it all look fifties. Just like the movie, simple times.
