    • Synopsis
    • The year is 2009 and Chris Forbes has agreed to coach the Socorro Bulldogs, a rag-tag and undisciplined baseball team at the poorest high school in El Paso, Texas----Socorro High.
      His players don’t know how to win. How could they? They practice on a field made of rocks and weeds and the school district has no money to even purchase new uniforms---they wear hand me down jerseys from the year before where even the names aren’t changed.
      But Coach Forbes wouldn’t accept excuses. If the school couldn’t provide a suitable field, then he had his players work the dirt in the scorching sun until the field was green and worthy of a baseball team. He held car washes to purchase new uniforms. Through their hard work, Coach Forbes instilled discipline and a will to win in his discouraged players.
      With every win, his players started to believe in their coach and his firm hand and unorthodox baseball drills. As the wins mounted, the community started to believe---then the city. Socorro High School soon became a team to be reckoned with as they started to defeat the well-financed, powerhouse baseball teams throughout the state.
      And then the unthinkable happened. Overcoming a myriad of challenges, the team accomplished a feat that had not been done in sixty years---they won the state high school baseball championship. A rare coach…..A rare set of players…..A rare title.
