Child Actor Gary Coleman at his Top!
11 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This Heartwarming Father and Son/Baseball Fantasy is marvelous! Different Strokes Star Gary Coleman is at his childlike enthusiastic best, in playing a unheeded young lad, who takes over as Manager of the Major League Baseball Team San Diego Padres. He has to try to bring the team from worst to first, while struggling to prevent child authorities from separating him from his loving, alcohilc ex-player, Father (played by the always reliable Robert Guillaume). Actor Gary Collins plays a commendable supporting role, as an aging star player (and the father's old rival), who sees in the Kid his own youthful vigor for the Game, as well as a last shot at Glory. Well worth watching for the dynamics between the actors, and for remembering the kid in each of us, who has ever loved the Game of Baseball!
