Ron Roggé in "The Perfect Game" (2009)

Based on a true story, "The Perfect Game" follows a group of young boys & their coach from Monterrey, Mexico to the Little League World Series where they became the first non-U.S. team to win the championship in 1957, while also accomplishing the feat of having the only perfect game ever pitched in Little League World Series history. Ron Roggé (Captain Mitchell, Lightspeed) appears in a chunk of the film where he appeared as the umpire during a series of games where the Monterrey team are playing. Most of his appearances on-screen occur in the background, however, Roggé does get a moment in the film to speak, as he reminds the boys' coach that there's more than one inning in a baseball game, after the boys begin to celebrate after getting their first out call. His character is never referred to by name. The film also stars Clifton Collins Jr., Cheech Marin and Lost star Emilie de Raven.

"The Perfect Game" is available on DVD
