To complicate matters, he falls in love with a snob client's daughter. Written by KGF Vissers

Goofs

When Miles catches the fly ball that causes him to leap over the outfield wall, this is recorded as an out. This is correct. The result of the play is an out, not a home run. MLB rule 7.04(c) states, "If a fielder, after having made a legal catch, should fall into a stand or among spectators or into the dugout or any other out-of-play area while in possession of the ball after making a legal catch, or fall while in the dugout after making a legal catch, the ball is dead and each runner shall advance one base, without liability to be put out, from his last legally touched base at the time the fielder fell into, or in, such out-of-play area."

A delightful interlude of no redeeming value.
9 January 2004 | by (San Antonio, Texas) – See all my reviews

A care free movie about the love of base ball and the opposite sex. Well, Freddie Prinze is the hot shot pitcher trying to make his mark in life while mowing lawns. Along comes Jessica Biel and he is head over heels in love. Playing base ball and making the big time is his goal, but the super rich father of the opposite sex has other diabolical plans and doesn't want the guy who mows the lawn involved with his daughter. But as happens, love congers all and Freddie and Jessica are united in the end. Ad nauseum. Predictable. But a lighthearted movie and worth the time to watch.
