An Inning at a Time is about a small-town Indiana baseball team that won the American Legion Baseball National Championship in 1977. It chronicles the improbable path of one team's journey that changed ordinary into extraordinary. It's an account of a group of young athletes coming of age - who dared to be winners and for one glorious season to live a dream by substituting passion for lack of size and who had the heart to overcome their fear of failure and outplay teams with bigger, stronger and more exceptional athletes.
Our story is a message to coaches, players and parents that any team that is willing to do the work and play for today can win this tournament. It doesn't take superstars; it takes consistency and coaches trusting each player to reach his full potential: the same today as it was then. This team remains the only National Champion from Indiana in the 83-year history of American Legion Baseball.
