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

The film portrays the Indians winning the AL East, and the White Sox winning the AL West under baseball's two-division format. The year the film was released was baseball's first season with the three division and Wild Card format in which the Indians and White Sox played in the newly formed AL Central division. See more »
Jake Taylor becomes a coach when Cleveland keeps Parkman and Baker as the two catchers. However when Parkman's rights are sold to Chicago, a second catcher is never added to the roster, and Baker seems to be the only one on the roster.

Naturally I agree with the overall comments: it's an average film. Period. But I hasten to add that the people who worked on this film did do a better job -- a far better job than they are given credit for with regard to being AUTHENTIC to the MLB 'scene.' If it 'failed' it was NOT because of David Ward but because ONE of his main assistants did NOT know baseball... and that fact was NOT discovered until they were too deep into production.
I'm partial -- after all, I played an umpire in this film! It's my ONLY claim to film-dom...so if anyone else who appeared ever reads this... CONTACT ME!
