Based on the inspiring, true story of baseball phenomenon Rickey Hill. The son of a small-town traveling pastor (Dennis Quaid), Rickey shows an extraordinary talent for baseball despite growing up with a degenerative spinal disease. His father discourages Rickey from playing baseball to protect him from injury and to have him follow in his footsteps to become a preacher. Driven by his faith and love of the sport, he continues to play against his father's wishes. But when a scout for the major league arrives, he must overcome his worsening condition and the division it causes in his family to fulfill his dream of playing professional baseball.
