Storyline

There comes a time when every young man must sever the ties of home to seek his way in the world. For 17-year-old Will Wright, the point of departure comes with the crack of a bat as he makes the cut at Newton Mill. But it's not going to be an easy road. During the late 1920s in South Carolina, "town folk" rarely set foot on "mill hill." Young Will has no problem breaking with tradition but his traditionalist father, Ezekiel Wright, explicitly forbids it. Yet Will feels the call to play ball so deep that he leaves home against his father's wishes and becomes the first "townie" ever to play for Newton. Golden dreams of a baseball career seem within his grasp-if only he can catch the eye of a minor league scout at the league championship. First, he has to survive a summer among the roaring, lint-blanketed world of textile spindles and looms. The clash of cultures is obvious from day one when Pike Spangler, "Big Stick" for the Newton Mill Sluggers, goes out of his way to knock Will down ... Written by Anonymous

Milltown Pride - a great gift for baseball fans!
20 August 2015 | by jeffburchettSee all my reviews

If you enjoy baseball and moral, entertaining movies, I think that you'll love Milltown Pride! This movie would make a great gift for baseball lovers! This film would, also, delight others, who desire Christian entertainment that has a happy ending! This movie appealed to me, too, because it is very wholesome. There isn't any swearing, or deafening noise (crazy music) unlike most movies that are on the market! I agree with another reviewer, that we need more movies, like Milltown Pride, that are NR rated, or G rated.

Milltown Pride is a witnessing movie and was well made. The depression era movie accurately showed how folks lived back then. If you were a child during the 1920s, or 1930s, or if you have a parent or grandparent that grew up at that time-frame, then you will like this movie. Watch Milltown Pride and view the challenging but, also, sweet things of this era.
