Synopsis
Filmed in Ashland and Medford, the story follows a sophomore at Bayford City College who wants to make the baseball team. The problem? He is long on determination but short on skills. Calvin Marshall (Alex Frost, Gus Van Sant's Elephant) had a childhood dream of being a major leaguer but he can't even make the junior college team. Doug Little (Steve Zahn, Rescue Dawn), the hard-nosed coach, has had his own failures and doesn't have the heart to tell Calvin to abandon his dream. Calvin manages to stay on the team and also charm the college volleyball star—but it all may be fleeting. This Rogue Valley production is a poignant comedy about overcoming disappointment, cultivating defeat and becoming the kind of person who dares to dream again. The film features Oregon Shakespeare Festival company members in addition to dozens of other local actors and extras. [adult content, language]
