Us Rating: **

This after-school-special-style drama tells the obscure story of a Little League team from Mexico that
made the U.S. nationals in 1957. Kid players Enrique (Jansen Panettiere, Hayden's little brother) and Angel (Nickelodeon star Jake T. Austin) win game after game on their way to the miraculous, but inevitable, championship. The overlong saga does have one surprise, though: Pot poster boy Cheech Marin turns up as a priest!
