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

Cute movie.
26 May 1999 | by (Minneapolis, MN) – See all my reviews

As someone who knows absolutely nothing about baseball, and therefore can view the movie without that particular bias, I'd have to say it was cute. Light humor interspersed with bizarre, bratlike antics on the part of all characters. It'd almost be a good kids movie if they could have left out the swearing.
