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.

Kids today are amazing. I played winter ball down in Venezuela, they had kids half his age, every one of them speaking Spanish. That's a hard language.

A great baseball movie. Maybe the best baseball movie of the 1990's. Though more for children, I thought it was good for any true fan of the game. The film was well done all-around. It was funny how the players look so big compared to 12-year-old Billy Heywood, who is to be the leader. Actual major league players are in this movie, too.
