Team Mexico

Based on the true story of the 1957 Monterrey Industrials Little League Baseball team, The Perfect Game is an inspiring tale about faith and the resilience of the human spirit in the face of overwhelming odds.

Play Ball

Living in the poverty of Monterrey, Mexico in 1957, a group of boys discovers the joy of sandlot baseball under the guidance of their coach, Cesar, an aspiring Major League coach who faces discrimination at every turn. Even though they don’t have a lot of money or high-tech equipment, they have a dream to play in the Little League World Series.

Tomorrow, The World

Relying on faith, a kind priest (Cheech Marin) and a love of the game, the team starts an incredible winning streak that leads them across the border to Texas and all the way to Williamsport, PA where they have the chance to become the first foreign team to ever win the Little League World Series. Against all odds, can this team make history?

The Bottom Line

This is a touching sports movie about a time where the world was a very different place to live. Clifton Collins Jr. is great as the troubled coach, and Cheech Marin adds some laughs. The young cast impresses as well, especially Moises Arias (Hannah Montana) and Jake T. Austin (Wizards of Waverly Place). If you like baseball, history, or both, you’ll really like this movie.
