Goofs

When Nuke is pitching and his father at the game ... the signs in the outfield change. When the batter is hitting, there is a sign in the outfield that reads "Sheraton University Center", but when Crash goes out to talk to Nuke, this sign is no longer there. It appears to have been filmed at a different ballpark. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Annie Savoy: [narrating] I believe in the Church of Baseball. I've tried all the major religions, and most of the minor ones. I've worshipped Buddha, Allah, Brahma, Vishnu, Siva, trees, mushrooms, and Isadora Duncan. I know things.

The only movie I have ever walked out on!!
27 August 2003 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

Quite possibly one of the most overrated movies in motion picture history. As previously stated, this is the only movie I have ever walked out on. My memory has faded quite a bit since 1988, but the sheer boredom remains embedded. I can't quite pick out why it was so bad...oh did I mention it was boring. My buddies and I snuck out and caught Halloween 4 that night (which can I recommend). If insomnia is your problem, then take a dose of Bull Durham. CURED!

Bottom Line: 1/10!
