This extraordinary gift propels him into the 1954 Brooklyn Dodgers lineup, where he plays alongside real-life legends such as Roy Campanella and Carl Erskine.

Just as he’s living his dream, a personal tragedy threatens to derail everything right before a crucial game. Shot partially at Brooklyn’s Ebbets Field, the film melds nostalgia and high-stakes drama, culminating in a moment where Roogie must choose between losing his newfound life or becoming a baseball legend.
