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".

Fans here at Sportsman's

are glued to their seats

as the Cardinals and Dodgers

are even at two apiece.

Sal Maglie takes the sign

from Campanella. He winds up.

Here's the pitch! Whammo!

Musial's bat cracks off

at his fist

as he sizzles

one to Gil Hodges,

Musial is two for two!

Does anyone want a slightly used bat?

I... I was promised.

Promised? By who?

By Eddie Stanky.

Stanky's gone.

Mr. Tanner,

I've been working

on this shot for years.

You'll get other shots,

but this is the Majors,

and we need to bring in

somebody who's...

Who's what?

Not Mexican?

Look here,

when Stanky found you

you were a batboy

in San Antonio.

Hornsby hired you.

I didn't.

It's my team now, and

you'll do what you're told.

That's all, we're done.

I didn't get it.

Where you going?

Monterrey, Mexico.

Why?

That's where

my folks are from.

You don't know

anyone there.

Yeah, well I thought

I knew people here.

Cesar!

By the end

of the shift,

I want all

of this removed.

Hey you!

Boss needs

this slag cleared.

Sounds good. Why

don't you get it done?

Why don't you go

back to America?

I hear he can't.

Maybe he killed somebody.

You think you're better

than us, Mr. Baseball Man?

Look where it got you.

You'll never know what

it is to have anything

'cause you'll never

have anything to lose.

Cesar!

A few months ago,

his oldest boy was playing

at the Church of the Dead.

All of our boys did,

but his slipped and fell.

Our Father who

art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come, thy will be

done, on Earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily

bread and forgive our trespasses

as we forgive those who

trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation,

but deliver us from evil. Amen.

Today, we command the spirit

of Pedro Macias into Your hands.

In the name of the Father,

and the Son, and the Holy Ghost.

Pedro was a good boy,

a very good boy.

By the end

of the shift.

You want someone? Take me.

These children

have nothing.

How can I give them hope?

Thank you.

And that's two outs!

Brooklyn Dodger fans are on their

feet for the rookie, Sandy Koufax.

The poor lanky kid who rose from the

streets of Brooklyn to the Major Leagues.

Koufax, studies the sign...

He winds up.

And here's the pitch.

Strike three! He's done it!

Koufax has just pitched

his first shutout,

allowing Cincinnati

only two hits!

What a performance, this kid has

champion written all over him!

Koufax studies the sign.

Ugh.

Mario! It's a Holy Day,

not a time for games.

If God didn't want us to play games,

he wouldn't have made them so

much fun! Right?

Will you shut him up?

I'm trying to sleep!

He has to practice

for choir.

Choir? You're turning

him into a woman.

You shut him up,

or I'll do it myself.

Why did you stop?

It's all right, Mama.

I'm finished.

Your Father's

not an evil man.

He just... can't

feel anymore.

Is he ever gonna get better?

I don't know.

Father Esteban says

anything's possible

with the help of God.

Ha! You're out!

I tipped it!

Boys. It's time.

Come.

Did so tip it.

Gil

Hodges steps up to the plate...

Do you think we have a chance?

Two outs, down by

three in the bottom of the 9th!

Enrique, I meant

this season.

You know the beautiful

thing about opening day

is today, every team

is in first place.

Yankees got lucky

last year.

Lucky? You call Don

Larson's perfect game, lucky?

What's a perfect game?

No runs, no hits, no walks.

No one

gets to first.

Yeah.

To me, baseball

is always perfect.

I imagine when you look

out from home plate,

the field
