Jim Morris (Dennis Quaid) let go of his dreams for a career in professional baseball after a shoulder injury twelve years ago. Now a high school chemistry teacher and baseball coach, he agrees to go to a professional tryout if his team wins the championship. Holding up his end of the bargain, he is nearly laughed off of the field but then surprises the scouts by throwing pitches at nearly 100 miles per hour. Jim may be able to achieve his big-league dreams after all. The heartwarming sports drama is based on a true story and celebrates its 15th anniversary this year. Discussion with director John Lee Hancock and writer Mike Rich, moderated by VFF advisory board member John Harris
