Storyline

Those Cleveland Indians are at it again! After losing in the ALCS the year before, the Indians are determined to make it into the World Series this time! First, though, they have to contend with Rachel Phelps again when she buys back the team. Also, has Rick "Wild Thing" Vaughn lost his edge? Are Jake's knees strong enough to make it as a catcher another year? These and other questions are answered as the Indians recapture the magic and win the championship "their way".

Trivia

Although the White Sox are portrayed as the heavies of the film, their history has been almost as tormented as that of the Indians. Said to be the defending World Series Champions in the film, at the time of its production and release the White Sox had not won an AL Pennant since 1959 or a World Series since 1917. Then, the White Sox won an AL Pennant and the World Series in 2005. See more »

Goofs

When the newspaper headlines come on screen after the Indians regain first place, the headline to the right says that they can "cinch" the division when it should have read "clinch." See more »

Quotes

Harry Doyle: Hello everybody. Harry Doyle here, welcoming all you Wahoo maniacs to the year's first session of Tribe Talk. As you know, the Indians had a Cinderella season last year. Despite the fact that *toxic* owner Rachel Phelps wanted the team to lose so she could move it to Florida, the Indians won the American League East for the first time since divisional play began.

Underrated
10 June 2000 | by See all my reviews

To me this one is a lot better than the third one, and just about as good as the original. I don't understand why people don't like this movie. Bob Uecker is as funny, if not funnier than he was in the original. Randy Quaid (hey vile thing) is hilarious as an obsessed Indians fan who turns anti-fan. The new characters are very funny and wacky. Also The game at the end is thrilling. All in all underrated, and just about as good as the original. I give Major League II *** out of ****
