Celebrate “Back to School” with this film that is based on the true story of the Norway High School baseball team. Kent Stock is an assistant baseball coach at Norway High School in an Iowa farming community. Working under local legend Jim Van Scoyoc who led Norway to 19 straight state championships, Stock is happy to lend a temporary hand. But he finds his destiny altered when Van Scoyoc is pushed aside by a school board determined to close Norway High and stifle dissent by undercutting the team’s chances of a 20th victory. On the wrongheaded assumption that Stock can’t motivate kids, the coaching job is offered to him, and he takes to it immediately in his low-key way. Despite early struggles, Stock inspires his players to think about what’s important in Norway’s last shot at greatness: How do they want to be remembered? Rated PG. Popcorn and pop are provided by the Friends of the James Kennedy Public Library.
