Vincent Preston is in real trouble. With absentee parents, he raises himself, barely graduating high school, and has one chance to get out of his small town: baseball. He has a strong arm, but unfortunately he is wild, out of control. Thankfully, his English teacher, Mrs. Dean, introduces him to her husband, "Grandpa Dean," a gruff WWII veteran and former Major League Baseball scout who missed his shot when he was injured in the war. He is riddled with cancer and is looking for one last chance at atonement for carrying around his anger for so long. Vincent's mentor teaches him not only how to take advantage of his natural talent, but to trust in God. He'll need his newfound faith in Christ to overcome his shady coach, the coach's bully of a son, and the local drug dealer, all of whom are intent on wrecking his dreams.
