Al 'Boogie' Lewis,
Ryan Dunne, a nice high-school kid, who works hard mowing lawns for dad Sean's firm, is caught between loyalty to Sir, who cynically believes neither of his sons will even climb the social ladder, and big brother Mike, who scolds Ryan's lack of ambition to go all the way to be recruiter for for a baseball college scholarship, which Mike had to abandon due to a wound.

Near the beginning of the movie, the brief shot of the light stanchion clicking on (to illuminate the field for a night game) is actually a reversal of the actual footage. This was done for effect as mercury-vapor lights (commonly used in such applications) take some 4-7 minutes to achieve full brightness after being switched on. Now, they do (almost) go completely dark when turned off (with a faint glow lasting for a short while). If you view this closely, you'll notice that the lights are glowing at first and then snap up to full bright. See more »
You don't understand...
Understand what? Being broke? I understand!
Understand what? Doing something you love? I understand! I love standing on that mound with a baseball in my hand... Staring at a guy holdin' a club *60* feet away... KNOWING... that he can't touch me... It is the only place in the world that I feel powerful...
Why are you so scared?
Scared of what?
Of everything! Success? Love? You say you love getting on that mound and playing baseball! Why would you ever settle for ...

I actually vomited and pooped out the wrong holes while watching this film. After I awoke from my epileptic seizure caused by the line uttered by Jessica Beil (Let yourself be great), I found myself imprisoned in some sort of Russian Gulag. I was beaten and tortured day and night for two years, but this pain could not compare to that which I experienced while watching this film. After being released from the Siberian Prison, doctors told me that I am now slightly retarded, not from the malnutrition of the forced labor camp, but from (as you may have guessed) watching Summer Catch. I am married now and my children were born with flipper fins because my wife and I conceived our children while watching this movie. I have enrolled them in the institute for children with mutations caused by "Summer Catch" also known as ICMCSC. I have started selling bracelets similar to those created by Lance Armstrong to help fund ICMCSC. They read: "Summer Catch Ruined My Life". An alternative slogan, that was later rejected, read: Let Yourself...Summer Catch Sucks. Till my dying day I will never forgive those who have taken so much from me. I have made peace with my alcoholic abusive father, I have forgiven that one guy who stole my car and then ran me over with it, I have even buried the hatchet with my cousin who actually lit me on fire and then peed on me to put it out, but since he had so much alcohol in his system, it actually further engulfed me in flames...but I will always carry the hate for those who made, starred in, and produced this Godless abomination of a film. Have a nice day.
