Gibsonburg is based on the true story of a high school baseball team that had a regular season record of 6 wins and 17 losses in 2005. During the regular season they lost 13 games in a row, were mercy ruled 7 times, and lost the last game of the season by a score of 17 to 0. In a magical way, their first year coach got this same team to win 8 post season games in a row which took them to the State Championship. No team, in any state, has ever won a State Championship with a losing record. Although baseball is the backbone of the film, Gibsonburg is actually more of a coming of age film that deals with the many trials and tribulations facing high school students today. Along the road to the State Championship a romantic love story unfolds as well as a mystery that rivals any discovery that has ever taken place in the Midwest.
