Boys of Summer features former county league baseball star turned Marine, James Dalton, as he lies in a blast hole with his brother Jacob in Vietnam, staring death right in the face. The father of a true ball player, a rebel and a storyteller, James battles to keep his boys together through hardships of alcohol and drug abuse, death, decline and war. From Little League to the town’s famous “Summer League,” the Dalton boys grow to follow different paths in life that change the course of their family forever.
