Only a miracle can help baseball coach Arthur 'Murph' Murphy (Dean Cain) and his losing minor league baseball team. As Murph sets out to recruit new talent for the team, he stumbles upon Mickey (Luke Schroder), a young farmer with an incredible pitcher's arm. However, Mickey's parents are reluctant in allowing him to join the team because he has Asperger's syndrome, a form of autism.
Murph convinces Mickey's parents that life in the minor league will benefit their unique son, but he doesn't realize just how much his new recruit will help the team's game and, more importantly, their spirit.
Based on a true story, Thomas Kinkade Presents: A Mile in His Shoes is an inspirational film that celebrates faith, determination and the power of friendship.
When Saturday night comes, grab a bowl of popcorn, gather everyone in the family room and put this movie on! This is a winner!
Based on 'The legend of Mickey Tussler', a novel written by talented Frank Nappi, 'A mile in his shoes' is the story of a remarkable young Ohio farmer with a sensational pitcher's arm.
Mickey is undeniably warm and caring and has a remarkable memory for numbers. He also suffers from Asperger's syndrome, a form of Autism.
Wonderful quotes from the movie:
'You'll never know what's possible until your learn to believe in yourself' and 'Sometimes miracles happen when you least expect them and late in the game'.
What better messages to pass on to our children?
A presentation of Thomas Kinkade the Painter of Light, this movie is directed by William Dear (remember Harry and the Hendersons?) and stars actor Dean Cain with the million dollar smile as the friendly Coach with a past.
Luke Schroder also makes his acting debut and gives us a heartfelt performance you will find endearing! Luke's tasteful rendition of 'Mickey' reminds us of his famous Dad, Rick Schroder. A quick look at the Special Features explains also Luke's respect for the character he plays in the movie and how he came to study the part. A young actor with much promise!
This is is a movie the whole family can appreciate and worth 5 stars!
