His Shoes" is the story of Mickey Tussler, a young man with Asperger's
Syndrome--a type of autism--who is recruited by a passionate manager to
pitch for his minor league team. The story centers on Arthur Murphy, who
coaches a semi-pro baseball team out of a small country town in Ohio.
The team he is coaching is starting another losing season, and Murphy is
getting pressure from the owner for the team to improve or suffer the
consequences. So Murphy is sent on a scouting trip to bring talent to
the team. By chance, on his way to scout, his car breaks down and Murphy
meets a young autistic country boy named Mickey Tussler. Mickey is
autistic so he is a little bit off, but still very nice and friendly.
Murphy sees Mickey throwing some apples, and spies Mickey's arm as
talent. So, Murphy persuades Mickey's uptight parents to let Mickey come
to Clayton, Ohio and have a tryout. Once in Clayton, Mickey proves his
talent, and becomes well liked. However, Lefty, another pitcher on the
team dislikes him; jealous. Lefty hires some men to take Mickey out and
beat him up, hurting his right throwing hand. Mickey is then out for a
few weeks, where Lefty (another pitcher) begins to shine in his absence.
Then, somehow the law finds out about what Lefty did and he is kicked
off the Rats (the baseball team). Then, after some time, Lefty joins
their rivals the Bullets. Meanwhile, Mickey is having trouble focusing
since his injury so Murphy takes him home to get his head on straight.
Murphy ends up getting into a fight with Clarence, Mickey's father, and
Mickey stays behind. In the end there is a final showdown between the
two rivals, and beforehand Murphy persuades Clarence to let his son play
again. Mickey shines, and the Rats win. MPAA Rating: (C) 2011 MIHS
