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

The outfield wall inside the stadium reads "Smythe Field", named for the fictional owner of the team, J. Harrell Smythe. However, on an exterior shot showing fans arriving for a home game, the outside wall clearly reads "Henley Field". See more »

Living and breathing baseball sometimes requires something on the side.
9 June 2001 | by (Muskogee OK) – See all my reviews

This is a very good baseball/comedy. A past his prime player/manager(William L. Peterson)takes a low budget minor league team, the Tampico Stogies, from the cellar to the top of their league. Peterson still hopes of getting called to the 'bigs' while his team is being energized by the play of a rookie 'phenom'(Dermot Mulroney). Then there is the homer run hitting(Lary Riley)that has to pretend to be Puerto Rican instead of black. The owners want to secretly sell the team. And then there is the drop dead gorgeous groupie(Virginia Madsen)that is one hell of a distraction.

Supporting cast includes: Panchito Gomez, David Lanston Smyrl and Henry Gibson. If you liked BULL DURHAM or MAJOR LEAGUE, you can't help but like this movie. Step up to the plate and take a cut!
