A Family Story by John Grisham
When widowed attorney Tripp Spence (Harry Connick Jr. of Independence Day) finds himself wanted by the IRS, he and his young pitching sensation son Derrick (Shawn Salinas in his movie debut) change their appearance, assume new identities and flee to Las Vegas. Here, Derrick becomes 'Mickey' and Tripp enrolls him in a second final year of Little League. But as the nation, the government and a nervous Tripp watch, 'Mickey' leads his team from the city championship all the way to the controversial final game of the Little League World Series. Can a 13-year-old fugitive with an 80 mph fastball now find a way to stay anonymous - and honest - as the most famous 12-year-old athlete in the world?
