The Heart and Hope of The Hill

The Hill | Based On The Incredible True Story

"Growing up impoverished in small-town Texas, young Rickey Hill shows an extraordinary ability for hitting a baseball, despite being burdened by leg braces from a degenerative spinal disease. His stern, pastor father discourages Rickey from playing baseball to protect him from injury, and to have him follow in his footsteps and become a preacher. As a young man, Rickey becomes a baseball phenomenon. His desire to participate in a try-out for a legendary major league scout divides the family and threatens Rickey’s dream of playing professional baseball."

One of my most appealing facts is that this movie is based upon an actual, factual, real-life, true story. Inspiring and heartwarming, The Hill is a biographical sports drama telling the life story of Rickey Hill. Overcoming his physical disabilities, Hill was able to rise to fame as a professional baseball player in Major League Baseball. 

Taking place during the 70s in rural Texas, Rickey Hill spent the greater part of his youth wearing leg braces and using crutches to help him to get around. While his disabilities may have presented him with challenges, Hill stood out as a highly talented baseball player, aspiring to make it to the field playing in the major leagues.

The Hill | "Never Give Up Hope."

With the help of his father and his coach, Hill worked with great faith and determination to overcome his disabilities and become a successful baseball player. The Hill is based on Rickey Hill being the first player with leg braces to play in Major League Baseball, playing for both the Chicago White Sox and the San Francisco Giants.
