Trivia

Shawn Salinas went with the crew to Las Vegas where they shot 18 hours of Second Unit shots, but Harry Connick Jr. did not go. Thus, in the scene where Glen and Mickey arrive in Las Vegas by bus, the shots that include Glen were taken in Virginia while the rest of the scene was shot in Las Vegas. See more »

Goofs

Another Home/Visitor dugout mistake occurs when the North Vegas (U.S. West) team plays the Cuban (Caribbean) team. Mickey, the third to bat in the top of the first inning, is shown coming out of the Home dugout (01:17:46) when the Home team always takes the field in the top of an inning. See more »

Quotes

[opening narration]
Commissioner: They can throw curveballs and hit homeruns, they still listen to their fathers... most of the time. And what every dad wants is just one more season. It's the City Championship, the final game of the year. The father calls the pitches, the son always delivers.

I enjoyed it!
23 July 2004 | by (Charlottesville, V A) – See all my reviews

As a former Little League dad and Little League coach, I was curious about the movie, particularly because part of it was filmed in our home town. So I admit to a little bias when I see some people I know in the movie.

That notwithstanding, I very much enjoyed it. The producers decided to cast baseball players and teach them to act, rather than trying to teach actors to play baseball. The baseball sequences are well done, and very realistic to Little League experience.

I was wondering how they were going to deal with the basic problem of making a feel-good ending out of a pretty lousy set of circumstances, and I really thought they did it well.

I suspect that it will not get great reviews -- there is not a lot of complexity and brooding and foreboding, no sex, violence or cursing, etc.

It's a little like "The Mighty Ducks"; the fact pattern is believable if improbable, kids mature and succeed, parent makes a good connection with a love interest, and by the end you like the characters and you care what happens to them.

Good summer flick.
