Already the best baseball team in their small county, these kids are about to find out just how good they really are when they hit the road for the biggest tournament in the entire region. –RedHawks Logline
For the RedHawks, winning is the only thing. With nothing but championship trophies the past three years, Scottie Hayes and his best buddies Josh Cooper, Andy Murdock and Joey Brooks have pretty much owned the baseball diamonds in their dusty rural county.
After winning their fourth straight county championship, the RedHawks get a well-deserved invite to The Big Show, a regional tournament that features the best of the best.
What ensues is a long road trip, a week of camp life and the kind of baseball these kids only ever dreamed about. Through it all, these kids are going to enjoy some childish shenanigans, take another step towards manhood, and maybe even lose a baseball game.
About the Project
Years back when I was on two proposed sports resort projects, I began thinking about product placement opportunities to promote the venues. At the time I thought a movie was a moonshot. But soon enough a story started to develop; then I found myself writing bits of dialog while sitting in a tavern late at night. While plans for those sports resort projects were eventually dropped, the movie keeps playing in my head. With a script nearing completion, hopefully one day you get to see this movie, too … on the big screen.
