The Perfect Game Trailer
Based on a true story, a group of boys from Monterrey, Mexico who become the first non US baseball team to win the Little League World Series in 1957.
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”.
It stars Cheech Marin and noone else you’ve ever heard of. For me it is a must-see-movie because it has 3 main elements. 1. Mexico 2. Baseball 3. Gloria Estefan song. Will you go see it?
