The Perfect Game

Synopsis: 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".

And until the final out, you

can, you can play forever.

And only God can make

something infinite and eternal.

Si.

Snider hits a deep

fly ball! Back to the wall,

Our Dodgers have spirit.

And Duke Snider.

And that's why Yogi Berra says,

'It ain't over

'till it's over'

You're late.

The game went

into extra innings.

No. You're not on time

for dinner, you don't eat.

You got

chores to do.

Tonight you can

clean out the corral.

It's too filthy,

even for a pig.

Umberto.

When I was his age, I had to

help put food on the table.

Go!

You're not going

to find answers in there.

Where then?

God.

God took my son.

He sacrificed his

only son! We have Angel!

Angel will never be

the son that Pedro was. Never.

Angel?

Pedrol Pedrol

Pedrol

What are you doing?

I'm Sandy Koufax.

The pitcher.

Well, Koufax,

you just ruined

my siesta.

Koufax is a lefty.

And Jewish.

Yes. Yes. I'm Jew...

I'm Ju... Je...

Whatever you said.

Well, it hasn't

improved your aim any.

What do you know?

Hey.

Hey, where'd you get this?

It... It's from God.

You best take

care of that.

Can I touch it?

Yes, of

course you can touch it.

It's heavier than I thought.

Let me see.

Whoa.

It's like

a woman's skin.

Father. What does it mean?

It means God wants

us to play baseball.

Angel.

That's what

I think it means.

Me, too.

What happens

when we lose this one?

Is God going to drop

another one from the sky?

He's God. He can do anything.

Father, what

does it say?

It says it

belonged to a saint.

Wow.

Angel,

maybe next time you can

ask him to give us a bat!

You again.

Want to have a catch?

No.

Okay, I guess

I'll just

have to practice

everyday by myself.

Every single day,

right here!

Everyday!

All right.

Just this once.

Then you have to promise me you're
