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 in allowing him to 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, Thomas Kinknade Presents: A Mile in His Shoes is an inspirational film that celebrates faith, determination and the power of friendship.

Another Thomas Kinkade movie for you to love.
I really enjoyed this DVD and am happy to review it.
The actors did an excellent job. The main actors are Dean Cain and Luke Schroder. This is the first movie I’ve seen Luke Schroder play in and thought what a marvelous story. This movie was based on the book “The Legend of Mickey Tussler.”
Mickey has Asperger’s Syndrome and Luke does a wonderful job of portraying a boy with this syndrome. He is quiet and really is respectful of this syndrome and doesn’t make it seem dumb or stupid.
I like how the team doesn’t give up even when they are losing and neither does Mickey. It is really hard for Mickey to keep himself from being to overwhelmed, but with help and his own determination he does it.
Of course you have your bully’s in this movie as you do in real life and I really liked how this movie ended and the faith and love Mickey had to do the right thing.
This is a very enjoyable movie that is very family friendly and would be an excellent addition to your library. I recommend it and know you will like it.
