This book is based on the true story from Author Vince Mckee experiences in Tri-League in the summer of 2000!
A true underdog story of overcoming odds and believing in yourself when no one else will. A feel good tale for the entire family. As the umpire yelled the final words and the championship game concluded, there was only a certain amount of people who truly understood the sacrifice that it took to get there. The courage and belief in one another had risen above any obstacle set in the way of fourteen young men in a summer of dreams.
In the spring and the summer of 2000 my team of little leaguers and I would go on the greatest journey anyone could ever dream of. In a time when I truly needed something to believe in, a group of ten year olds would provide exactly that.
I was eighteen and had just graduated from high school with the rest of my life ahead of me to decide what I was to become and where I was headed. Little did I know that it was going to take this group of amazing children to show me that life was worth having something and someone to believe in.
