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 the climactic scene with Ken Griffey Jr. getting thrown out due to the hidden ball trick, the play is factually accurate. Bowers, the pitcher, had stepped off the rubber before the throw.

In the last inning of the game between the Twins and the Mariners, Dave Magadan gets his uniform dirty after being tagged out sliding into second base, yet in the bottom of that inning he makes a diving catch and stands on his knees and you can see his uniform is clean. This is similar to the Ken Griffey Jr. incident as well. 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.
