Chad’s Role : Joe David West
From the studio that brought audiences “Remember the Titans” comes an inspirational motion picture, based on a true story, about a coach who discovers that it’s never too late for dreams to come true.
Jim Morris (DENNIS QUAID) thought his dream was over. He’d had his shot playing baseball, blew out his shoulder, and retired without ever making it to the big leagues. He settled down, had kids, and became the baseball coach and chemistry teacher at the high school in Big Lake,Texas.
But in 1999, Coach Morris made a bet with his team that would change everything. To motivate the team – perennial losers – he accepted their challenge: if they won the district championship, Morris would, in return, try out for the Major Leagues.
The bet proves incentive enough for the team, and they go from worst to first, making it to the state playoffs for the first time in the history of the school. Jim, forced to live up to his end of the deal, is nearly laughed off the try-out field – until he gets onto the mound, where he confounds the scouts (and himself) by clocking successive 98 mph fastballs, good enough for baseball’s Devil Rays to sign him up for their minor-league affiliate team. Jim’s still got a lot of pitches to throw before he makes it to the majors, but with his big-league dreams revived, there’s no telling where he could go.
