Every kid in America dreams of playing in the Major Leagues, but few ever dreamed of playing in The Pecos League. "The Pecos League" is made up of eight gritty and proud independent professional baseball teams stretching across New Mexico, Colorado, and West Texas. Far removed from the glamorous life of Major League Baseball, Pecos League players are given a jersey, a hat, and $50 a week to help them keep their dreams alive of playing professional baseball. These athletes play for the love of the game and because they know it could be their only chance to be noticed by a scout.
