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 legal, despite many viewers claiming it isn't. He began on the rubber holding the ball. When he feigns the throw, he first steps off the rubber which means he's allowed to fake a throw, or even just walk off the mound or prepare for his next pitch. Faking the throw therefor was not a balk. As time was not called by anybody, Griffey was also allowed to attempt a steal and be thrown out as he was. 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.
