When the owner of the Minnesota Twins dies suddenly, his will bequeaths the team to his grandson Billy, a devotee of baseball who, although only 12, has devoured voluminous lore, knows the team intimately, and has shown an uncanny sixth sense of what they need to improve. They hate their manager, so Billy quickly fires the SOB, winning their instant approval. However, this turns to dismay when he announces their new manager: Billy Heywood. How will Billy convince a gang of proud, tough men to stick around and take orders from a kid? On the other hand, what's to lose-- the team has nowhere to go but up. Written by

In a film that contains many references to baseball history, the most subtle is that of the Twins pitcher named Mike McGrevey (Scott Patterson). In the early 1900's in Boston, there was a saloon keeper with that name who led a group of Boston Red Sox fans called the "Royal Rooters". (Today, they would considered a "fan club")They would enter in a large procession and sit in the lower left field stands of the old Huntington Ave Grounds (and later, Fenway Park). The Rooters, who were often drunk, were known for viciously taunting opposing players and playing music throughout a game with a marching band that accompanied the Rooters. Their biggest claim to fame in baseball history came in the 1912 World Series when they became so disruptive that they delayed Game Seven of the Series. The Red Sox eventually won that World Series in Eight Games (Game 2 ended in a tie and was called for darkness, forcing the Series to go beyond 7 games) See more »

Between 1993-1995, many baseball movies such as Little Big League, The Sandlot, and Rookie of the Year came out, but I think that Little Big League was the most clever of them all. There were plenty of funny scenes that adults, rather than children, could relate to. It was well done and well acted. I enjoyed this movie and I have owned it since it came out.
