A Mile in His Shoes

Recently I was given the opportunity to review the movie, A Mile in His Shoes.  Read on to find out what I think about it and for a chance to win your own copy.

Synopsis:  Only a miracle can help baseball coach Arthur "Murph" Murphy (Dean Cain) and his losing minor league baseball team.  As Murph sets out to recruit new talent for the team, he stumbles upon Mickey (Luke Schroder), a young farmer with an incredible pitcher's arm.  However, Mickey's parents are reluctant to let him join the team because he has Asperger's syndrome, a form of autism.  Murph convinces Mickey's parents that life in the minor league will benefit their unique son, but he doesn't realize just how much his new recruit will help the team's game and, more importantly, their spirit.  Based on a true story, A Mile in His Shoes is an inspirational film that celebrates faith, determination and the power of friendship.

This is a wonderful, heartwarming movie the whole family can enjoy.  Whether you like baseball or not, you can't help but cheer for the River Rats and especially for Mickey as he joins the once-losing team.  Luke Shroder does an incredible job portraying Mickey, a boy with Asperger's syndrome, which I'm sure was no easy task.  Dean Cain is also great in this movie.

It is just an all-around good, wholesome family movie.  It even won The Dove Foundation's highest approval rating.  Rent it this weekend and watch with your family.  You won't be disappointed.
