Storyline

Al Percolo is a major league baseball scout sent to scout in Mexico as a punishment. However, he eventually stumbles across Steve Nebraska, a young American who can pitch AND hit better than anyone else can do either. He signs Steve and returns home in glory. It soon becomes obvious, though, that Steve is immature and possibly unstable, and Al turns to psychiatrist Doctor H. Aaron, whom he picks for her name, for help. Written by Reid Gagle

Trivia

Steve Nebraska's character is loosely based on a pitcher named Steve Dalkowski. But, unfortunately he never made it to the major leagues. See more »

Goofs

In a perfect game, the last out is the 9th and final batter in the order. For the majority of his career, Ozzie Smith either batted second or eight in the batting order, and was not known for batting ninth. If, according to Bob Costas, he had hit 5 home runs in the playoffs (ironic as he was known for having no power), most likely he'd be batting in his usual second spot, and not the eight spot. Either way, he did not bat last in the batting order, and wouldn't have been, especially in the world series. See more »

Quotes

Al Percolo: You don't have to yell, this is a different phone.
Ron Wilson: It has nothing to do with the phone, I just like yelling at you.

Great Baseball Movie
7 May 2004 | by (MASS) – See all my reviews

I think sometimes people take some movies too seriously, and this is an example of one of them. This is a fantasy baseball movie, not something that would actually happen. Does anyone think that "The Natural" was realistic? Brendan Frasier is great in his role as a child trapped in an adult's body due to an abusive childhood, but who is one of the greatest baseball players ever. Albert Brooks is also great as the scout whose bad luck suddenly changes when he discovers him in the middle of Mexico, and is so excited about his talent that he ignores the mental problems that Frasier's character has. However, Im disappointed we never learned more of what was actually wrong with him.
