Real life relief pitcher Mitch Williams (with the Chicago Cubs at the time of the film's release) was inspired to model himself after the Rick Vaughn character. He began to wear the number 99 and had "Wild Thing" played when entering games, shortly earning the nickname "Wild Thing". In addition, the modern day tradition of relief pitchers, mainly closers, having their own intro songs was largely inspired by this film. See more »
After Taylor grounds out in the 7th for 2 outs Dorn singles and Cerano homers. Taylor comes up in the ninth with 2 out and a man on. That implies 9 at bats since he grounded out. There are only 8 at bats between the same spot in the batting order. 7th inning single, homer and 3rd out of inning. 8th inning 3 outs and 9th inning 2 outs and a single. Either there should have been only one out or Dorn up with two outs. See more »

There was a lousy football game on so I thought I would wait for a better one and watch this film again. I am glad i did as the game ended 40-10.
The cast of this film is what makes it. They put together a great group to do a movie that is nothing special - losers and has-beens win the pennant.
I like Charlie Sheen and he is worth watching in anything he does, especially "Two and a Half Men." He was perfect in the character of the renegade.
I just saw Corbin Bernsen recently in The Dentist, and he can bring laughs to any movie.
Rene Russo? I love her and even though her part was small, it was great.
Wesley Snipes, Tom Berenger, and Dennis Haysbert all had a unique way of making this a great movie. And, hooray for Stacy Carroll in her only movie. How did they let her get away? I want to thank the Japanese Academy for recognizing this film with a nomination for best Foreign Film. They recognize greatness when they see it.
