Amiable cop Eddie Burke and his clumsy partner Burt Honneger get the impossible job of coaching a little league baseball team called the Tigers that's made up of assorted losers and misfits. Can Eddie and Burt whip the Tigers into shape and get the motley crew of oddballs to start winning games so they can have a real shot at the local championship? Written by
I remember seeing the trailer for this film on television. It seems like they ran it alot around release time (usually during re-runs of Gomer Pyle). The producers hired baseball announcer Mel Allen to voice it. After seeing the film years later (also on TV), I can't help but think the money they paid Mel for his voice work probably constituted one of the largest production expenditures.
This movie never fooled anybody. It was conceived and produced to cash in on the wild success of "The Bad News Bears". It flopped and was nearly forgotten (except for this imdb entry).
I don't think you'll see this film on a future AFI treasure list anytime soon.
