A boy with a golden arm but no money for lessons. A mother who wants to give her son his dream before she dies. A broken down World Series pitcher who cannot go on after the death of his wife. These are the elements of "The Pitcher." A story of a man at the end of his dream and a boy whose dream is to make his high school baseball team. In the tradition of "The Natural" and "The Field of Dreams," this is a mythic story about how a man and a boy meet in the crossroads of their life and find a way to go on. You will laugh and you will cry as The Pitcher and Ricky prepare for the ultimate try out of life.
A Mexican American boy who has no money but big dreams and a broken down World Series Pitcher who agrees to coach him to make the highschool team. This is the Karate Kid of our age with a cross cultural reference to immigration reform as he is a "dream kid" and his mother is facing deportation. Highly enjoyable.
