A Mile in His Shoes is a 2011 Canadian made-for-television sports drama film directed by William Dear and starring Luke Schroder and Dean Cain. It was based on the novel The Legend of Mickey Tussler by Frank Nappi, although the setting was changed from Ohio in 1948 in the novel to Bargersville, Indiana in 2002 in the film.
The film centers on Mickey Tussler (Luke Schroder), a 18-year-old from Indiana with Asperger syndrome, who joins the semi-professional baseball team the River Rats after being discovered by Arthur Murphy (Dean Cain).
