In the world of little league baseball -- this is where the Summer ends.

And for a group of 11 and 12 year olds from the South Bronx -- it's an ending that seemed so unlikely.

(SOT/IVETTE TORRES, MOTHER)

"(Sighs) It's something enormous. It's great.

(NARR:)

Their nickname is the "Baby Bombers" -- the first Bronx team to ever have a shot at the Little League World Series. And thanks to a left handed pitcher - with a soft voice and mean curve ball...

(NAT/PITCH)



(NARR:)

...they're well on their way. Danny Almonte pitched a perfect game -- the first one since 1957 -- striking out 16 of 18 batters. A performance that elevated his team to hero status - a bandwagon even politicians couldn't wait to get on.

(NARR:)

The Bronx and baseball have always gone together -- but Yankee Stadium is a far cry from this.

(NAT/SOT)

...kid hits ball..(trash in foreground)

(NARR:)

This was the "Baby Bomber's" home field. A city park, the city had forgotten.

(SOT/MARIO GUERRERO, FAN)
"It's kinda rough. You just need the rocks to be pushed away ---that's

all."

(NARR:)

The rocks, the garbage, the weeds -- and the occasional hypodermic needle.

(NAT/SOT CAR HORN THEN HIT)



(DISOLVE TO COWAN ON CAM)

The team was as tattered as their field -- of the few bats they had -- most were cracked -- their practice balls were old and yellow. And they had to borrow helmets from their opposing teams just to play a game. Strikes against them perhaps -- but no one ever counted them out.

(NARR:)

Especially this sports writer for a Bronx Spanish language newspaper. He founded the league.

(SOT/ROLANDO PAULINO, LEAGUE FOUNDER)

"Lee: A lot of people would say that they're surprised coming out of this environment that these kids are doing so well, and going so far. Are you surprised? A: No. Lee: Why? A: Because I know, I know my players cover with team winning last week) They're putting their heart, for play the baseball. Lee: Baseball is everything to them. A: yes."

(NARR:)

It is for their parents too.

(SOT/MADEINE CASTRO, MOTHER)

"Lee: It really is their ticket out of the Bronx? A: Yes definitely.They grow up poor, and when they're poor, they want to reach a better goal. They say, I don't want to be stuck in here, that's the way my children think.

(NARR:)

A little positive thinking that is about to pay off. Win or lose, when the Baby Bombers come home -- their home diamond wont be a park anymore -- it will be a brand new field - just a pop fly from Yankee Stadium. Proof heroes don't have to be big -- they just have to dream that way. Lee Cowan, CBS News, New York. )

A 36-acre farm where horses come to be endlessly pampered, petted and pecked on the nose.

But for the nine horses living at Dream Catcher Farm, this is their refuge after lives of work and neglect.
Terri Shell can tell you each horse her parents adopt has a sad story ... like this pony named Lucky, rescued from a North Carolina farm.

[SOT 18:09:52 - 18:10:05]

((TERRI SHELL/DREAMCATCHER FARM: (COVER) A BARN WAS BUILT UP AROUND HIM, HE WAS IN SIX FEET OF MANURE. (SHOW TERRI) HE DIDN'T HAVE ANY FOOD OF ANY KIND BESIDES THE MANURE. NO HAY, NO WATER, THEY HAD TO TEAR DOWN A PORTION OF THE BARN JUST TO GET HIM OUT. ))

After three years confined to the stall, Lucky's hooves had grown to 14 inches... and he couldn't move.
Now, he's got plenty of room to roam.

((BUCKY SUTPHIN/DREAM CATCHER FARM: LUCKY JUST... TO HAVE GONE THROUGH WHAT HE WENT THROUGH... HE'S THE SWEETEST DISPOSITIONED HORSE WE'VE GOT. ))

The family rescued their first horse 10 years ago -- buying him right off of a truck that was bound for a meat plant.

Now, they have a small army of volunteers to help them with tasks around the farm.

The money goes toward food and medicine for horses like Samson ... a retired police horse from New Jersey who has an allergy to hay.

Bucky Sutphin says he has room to take in dozens more horses. He just doesn't have the money to do it.
But one thing that there's plenty of at Dream Catcher farm is love.
