Description: Living amidst the gritty poverty of 1957 Monterrey, Mexico, a rag-tag group of boys from the other side of the tracks discovers the joy of sandlot baseball under the guidance of Cesar, an aspiring major league coach thwarted by discrimination. Armed with the dream of playing a real Little League game, the young team members defy a total lack of resources, disapproving parents, and widespread prejudice to score their first Little League victory on U.S. soil and find themselves at the beginning of a once-in-a-lifetime journey. Relying on their religious faith, a warm-hearted priest and their love of the game, the nine players and their coach embark on an incredible, record-breaking winning streak that leads them across the border to southern Texas, and all the way to the 1957 Little League World Series in Williamsport, Penn., where a miracle will cement their place in history and change their lives forever. Based on the true story of the 1957 Monterrey Industrials Little League team, "The Perfect Game" is an inspiring and heartwarming tale of faith and a testament to the resilience of the human spirit in the face of overwhelming odds.
