Based on the award-winning novel by Rusty Whitener, Season of Miracles follows the Robins, an underdog Little League team through their 1974 season with newcomer and autistic baseball savant, Rafer (Grayson Russell, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Talladega Nights). Team leader Zack (Andrew Wilson Williams) takes Rafer under his wing despite taunting from their rivals, the Hawks. Their Coach (John Schneider, The Dukes of Hazzard, October Baby), manager Rebecca (Sydney Morgan Layne), and the rest of the Robins encourage Rafer as the team rises towards an unlikely championship season, that is less about winning and losing and more about living and dying. Season of Miracles is a life-inspiring story about sportsmanship, friendship, and courage in the face of adversity. Written by Anonymous

The Robins Are Champions On and Off The Field
8 November 2013 | by WillGroveSee all my reviews

Season of Miracles has a lot going for it. After all, who doesn't love baseball. And the 70s. But at the heart of this indie gem, is the story of how a young team grew up one magical season when they encountered a boy with autism who changed their lives forward.

Grayson Russell is wonderful as the autistic, baseball crushing, Rafer. John Schneider is a caring coach who not only teaches the game of baseball, but the more important game of life. Rusty Whitener plays Rafer's bitter father with depth and emotion. Music is fun and keeps the story moving. A classic American tale worthy of family night in anyone's household.
