Did You Know?


Marc Blucas' character can be seen wearing a Wake Forest baseball cap early in the movie. It is black with a yellow "WF" on the front. Blucas actually attended and played basketball on a full scholarship to Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem North Carolina. He started along with Tim Duncan there. See more »


When Ryan's buddies are keeping track of the number of strikeouts that he gets in the last game by posting the 'K' signs they mistakenly post the Ks backwards when batters swing at the third strike. The backwards K is the baseball scorekeeping symbol for a strikeout in which the batter does not swing at the third strike. (Though this might be excused as character error). See more »


John Schiffner: Everything you do, on the field and off the field, affects your wallet! It's a shame to be hitting 190 on the field because you're hitting 700 in some gin mill. It's a shame to see your dreams and your bank accounts go up in smoke. Any more garbage from your guys and you'll be warming the sticky vinyl of a bus seat back to mommy! I don't care who you are. Now get outta here.

Biel and Summer Catch are Hot....
11 May 2003 | by (Cape Cod, MA) – See all my reviews

I grew up on Cape Cod. First of all Summer Catch was filmed in North Carolina not the Cape. One Crazy Summer (John Cusack/Demi Moore) was filmed in my hometown on the Cape but I hear the unions make it near impossible to film in Massachusetts now. Some of the pictures of fields and buildings were really from Chatham however. Much of Summer Catch rings true. Very few Cape kids actually have ever played in the Cape League. It is elite baseball. The summer on the Cape is full of babes and booze just like the film shows. The rich of the rich have summer homes on Cape Cod (like Rand in the film)and I was a "lawn boy" just like Freddie Prinz back in the 80s but not good enough to make the Cape League baseball. I could relate to this film and enjoyed it thoroughly. It brought me back to the parties and warm summer nights on the Cape that have a feeling like no where else on Earth. Rent it or catch it on HBO like I did. As for Ms Biel I am a fan for life and I hope she has a great career and maybe comes down to the Cape and parties with us sometime. She burns up the screen. I saw Scooby Doo before this film so seeing Shaggy catching and Fred pitch it made movie a little funny and I ws waiting for Scooby to run on field. Final Analysis...Summer Catch is a Grand Slam!!!
