Aging minor league pitcher Gus Cantrell is planning to retire, but then Roger recruits Gus to be the manager of the South Carolina Buzz, the Twins AAA minor league team. Gus's mission is to make a real team out of a bunch of players who include ballet dancer turned ballplayer Lance "Lance the Dance" Pere, Frank "Pops" Morgan, Rube Baker, Taka Tanaka, Pedro Cerrano, Hog Ellis, home run hitter Billy "Downtown" Anderson, and Carlton "Doc" Windgate, who throws the slowest fastball in professional baseball. Gus ends up clashing with Leonard Huff, the snobby, arrogant manager of the twins. One night in Minnestoa, Gus and his girlfriend Maggie Reynolds are having dinner with Roger and Huff at an expensive-looking restaurant, where Huff challenges Gus to a game between the Buzz and the Twins, then Huff starts a fight with Gus, who accepts the challenge. The game is scheduled to take place at the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome in Minnesota. The Twins take a 3-0 lead in the 6th inning, but Billy ... Written by
The hotel in Minnesota where Gus and Maggie visit and the team stays after its game with the Twins is the Francis Marion Hotel (on the awning). The Francis Marion is actually located downtown Charleston, S.C. and is named after General Francis Marion, "The Swamp Fox" See more »
When "Downtown" Anderson is shown batting for the Minnesota Twins and he strikes out, he is wearing number 14. But when he returns to the dugout and is chastised by Carlos Liston, Anderson is wearing number 16. See more »
Gentleman, you know the ground rules. So shake hands and let's have a good, clean ballgame.
[Huff puts out his hand, Gus reluctantly shakes it. He tries to walk away, but Huff won't let him]
I'm going to give you the beating of your life.
We'll see about that.
Yeah we will.
Oh, by the way, some of the guys are wondering where you got your toupee.
This is not a toupee. This is real.
You can level with me, huh Lenny? Where'd you get it?
[Pulling on his hair]
It's real. It's mine.

It's not as good as Major League, but considerably better than Major League 2.
It has good humor for some good laughs, and has it's own charm. Good for a Saturday or Sunday afternoon fair.
Scott Bakula was a good choice and has that veteran smarts and laid back way that makes him likable.
"Tell him to throw his fastball" -
"That WAS his fastball". Funny.
Don't take it too seriously and you may find yourself enjoying it. It follows along similar fair like Necessary Roughness. Good humor that sometimes gets lost when people look for too much. Grab some pop-corn and a soda and just enjoy it for what it is.
