Trivia

Teller, who famously never speaks in his "Penn and Teller" performances, has a speaking role in this film. He was cast because of his resemblance to Henry Gibson (they play father and son in the film). See more »

Goofs

Joe Louis Brown clearly steps in front of home plate to hit his Home Run when he is being intentionally walked. It is against the rules to do so. See more »

Quotes

Cecil "Stud" Cantrell: When God made Man, He made him outta string. He had a little left, so He left that little thing. When God made Woman, He made her outta lace. He didn't have enough, so He left that little space. Thank you, God!

Actually, it IS the best baseball movie ...
12 January 2001 | by (Vancouver, Canada) – See all my reviews

The only other baseball movies that come close to Long Gone are The Natural and Field of Dreams. Long Gone has the massive benefit of good casting: i.e. William Peterson looks like and is an athlete, as well as THE MOST under-rated actor of his generation, right up there with Jeff Bridges and Mel Gibson. And it's funny, too.
