A father's broken relationship with his family fills him with determination to win back the son he left behind. Reaching out through the game they both love, he deliberately forms a baseball team designed to reconnect both fathers and sons, transforming their town in the process. The story shows how one good man can lead change in his community for the common good.



My Thoughts

Joe and Hannah Finn and their son David have made a good life in Miller's Gap. Joe is coaching David's baseball team and earning himself the reputation of a successful leader. But when the opportunity of a lifetime comes along Joe decides to take it. He wants to get rich and make a name for himself then come back to his family.

For seven long years Joe pursues this dream while Hannah and David continue on with their life in Miller's Gap. We're introduced to this story-line when Hannah is dying and only has weeks to live. Joe of course comes home to be with her and David. While Hannah is thrilled to see her husband and make the most of the time they have left, David doesn't really want anything to do with his always absent dad.

Joe sets about reconnecting with his son and decides the best way to do that is through helping with the Gappers, the baseball team that David used to be part of and now coaches. One of the first things that Joe notices is that things have changed drastically in the seven years he's been gone. There are silly new rules for the games and the dads just don't show up anymore. 

This is a good family friendly movie about the value of fathers in their sons' lives. I did find it to be a bit ironic that the one trying so hard to fix this situation is the one who left his own family for seven years. I liked the movie but felt like the story was a bit out of order. I would have preferred if Joe had set his own house in order (made amends with his own son) before he set about trying to fix the dads in the town.

Again, this was a good movie that has a much needed message that dads are important especially to their sons. The acting was good and the pacing of the movie kept my attention. I would recommend this to all families for a nice movie night at home.
