A Mile In His Shoes Viewing Sept. 25

Television movies for next weekend, Sunday, Sept. 25 will feature A Mile in His Shoes, an uplifting film set in the 1940s about an autistic youth who is recruited to play for a minor league team, Milwaukee Brewers.

The film will air on Sunday evening at both 7 and 9 p.m. on the Gospel Music Channel (GMC). A Mile in His Shoes is an adaptation of a novel, The Legend of Mickey Tussler by Massapequa resident Frank Nappi.

Even though GMC isn’t part of the regular programming that Nassau County residents receive, it can be seen through both Direct TV and Verizon Cable outlets.

The movie stars veteran actor, Dean Cain and introduces Luke Schroder, son of Ricky Schroder, as the young man who tries to save a season with his blazing fastball.
