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". Written by

During filming, the real Cleveland Indians were moving out of Cleveland Municipal Stadium into Jacobs Field (now known as Progressive Field) on the other side of Cleveland. However, Jacobs Field was not yet finished being constructed, so the movie was shot at Oriole Park at Camden Yards in Baltimore, home of the Baltimore Orioles (which Cleveland's Jacobs Field was modeled after). The first "Major League" movie also used a different ballpark outside of Cleveland, Milwaukee County Stadium, as the Indians' home. See more »
When the Indians are playing a spring training game against the Red Sox, they are playing in Arizona. This couldn't happen. The Cleveland Indians play all their spring training games in the Cactus League in Arizona, while the Boston Red Sox play all their games in the Grapefruit League in Florida. From 1993 to 2008, the Indians did Spring Training in Winter Haven, Florida. That means they would be in the Grapefruit League during the time of the movie, so them playing ST games with the Red Sox as well as the Blue Jays and the Mets (as depicted in the movie) would be correct.

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. Rachel's gone now, thank God, having sold the team to retired Indian third baseman Roger Dorn, after a long, hard fought...

I thought there were just as many laughs and it was a decent sequel
I don't know why the harsh rating, I mean, despite the fact that a few actors were replaced, I thought that Major League 2 was a decent comedy. Separated from the first, I think more people would give it a chance. How could you not laugh at the buddist out fielder? He was hilarious! I liked how they showed that most of the guys changed, it was so human and added a real story.
The boys are back for the next season, this time Rachel has sold the team to Roger and he is in charge. The boys have all changed though, mainly Rick, who has lost his "wild thing" edge. The boys this time want to make it to the world series, but that's going to be hard since most of them have taken their fame to their heads. Rachel buys the team back and the boys finally decide to get themselves together and get to the world series!
Major League 2 is a good comedy if you just let go of the first one, I know that most don't want to since the first was so original and a great comedy as well, but just give it a shot as it's own movie. It has some really funny moments that I loved a lot. This movie at least deserves to have a better rating than a sorry 4.7.
