The Final Season

The Final SeasonIn the small town of Norway, Iowa (population 586), everyone believes in the magic of baseball. As the saying goes, "Norway is baseball." The town savors tradition and swells with pride because the Varsity Norway Tigers have won 19 state baseball championships in the last 24 years.

As the leader of the most successful team in state history, Coach Jim Van Scoyoc is no stranger to winning. But in late 1990, Van Scoyoc finds defeat off the ball field when Iowa state school board decides to merge Norway High with a nearby school. Not only is coach Van Scoyoc losing his team, but Norway is in danger of losing its identity.

1991 is Norway's last season to wear the Tiger uniforms, and it is up to rookie coach Kent Stock to lead the team to a final and 20th state championship. With all the odds suddenly stacked against them, how will Norway be remembered?

The Norway Tigers must find strength in themselves, and faith in each other, to bring their winning tradition to life one last time. THE FINAL SEASON, is a true story of a coach who inspired a broken team and brought hope to a town when they needed it most.
