Synopsis

Husband-and-wife team Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck direct this drama following an upcoming young Dominican baseball player, Miguel 'Sugar' Santos (Algenis Perez Soto), as he progresses from training camps in his homeland to play for a Minor League club in Iowa. There, he finds himself boarding with an elderly couple and trying out his moves as starting pitcher in front of a demanding home town crowd. Off the field, he hangs out with his fellow Spanish-speaking ballplayers, befriends a former college star and conducts a tentative flirtation with Anne (Ellary Porterfield): the strawberry blonde, churchgoing granddaughter of his hosts.
