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

The crowd and overhead shots at Yankee Stadium for Tommy Lacy's scenes during the day and when Steve Nebraska makes his debut during the World Series are from the 1993 season when the Yankees hosted the Detroit Tigers at the end of the season. See more »

Goofs

In the film, pitcher Brendan Fraser bats in game 1 of the World Series. In the World Series, if the American League team is home they are allowed to select a designated hitter. Although teams almost always use this option, they are not required to do so and may allow the pitcher to hit. See more »

this movie doesnt quite make the grade
1 November 2000 | by (PA USA) – See all my reviews

Albert Brooks stars as a down on his luck desperate baseball scout who finds a golden arm (Brendan Fraser) while in Mexico. Unfortunately he is a little bit eccentric. Has some good bits dealing with the fish out of water plot but overall it doesnt build up any steam and just kind of fizzles itself away.. on a scale of one to ten.. 5
