Review: Teddy is working hard to build his confidence as an athlete. He has the support of his circle of friends, Jack, Cassie and Gus, plays on a baseball team that makes it to the Little League World Series, and is trying his hand at an elite football team. All things seem to be going well, until his mom tells him his dad, who has not been a big part of his life, is moving back to the area. Even more, his father had been a star football player in his younger days. Teddy struggles with what his father's proximity will mean and learning to be a real team player.
