On August 28, 1982, Cody Webster and a small group of schoolyard friends from Kirkland, Washington, sat anxiously in a dugout waiting to take the field for the championship game of the Little League World Series. Their focus was just about what you'd expect from any 12 year old: hit the ball, throw strikes, cross your fingers and then maybe - MAYBE - you'll win. No American team had won a true international Little League World Series championship in more than a decade. When the Kirkland players rushed from their dugout that day they stepped onto a much bigger field than the one they saw. What they did, how they did it, and what happened to each of the players in the years that followed is a multi-faceted story - much like the diamond on which the game is played. Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Al Szymanski examines what happens to a group of childhood teammates when the high point in their life occurrs before life had really begun. This two-disc edition includes the championship game as it was broadcast on ABC's Wide World of Sports.
