Did You Know?

Trivia

(at around 47 mins) The director's commentary mentions that the sound of a train in the background is because they had to use the production soundtrack from when the film was shot and the train was actually there. Usually, after a movie is shot, the actors re-voice scenes so that background noise can be cleared up, but when the boys were brought back for re-voicing, their voices had all changed, making their re-voicing impractical.

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

Tony: So... tell me about your boy.
Trip: [chuckling] How'd you know?
Tony: About every week I get a call from a guy like you, a serious baseball dad. Looks me up, and he wants his kid to be a Moose.
Trip: Yeah, well, he's a great player.
Tony: [grinning] Gee, I never heard that before.

Flawed, but it got us talking
21 July 2004 | by See all my reviews

I saw Mickey with my wife and our two sons who, while past their little league days, at 15 and 17 are still close enough to have distinct memories of the experience. I thought the movie itself was watchable, but not much more than that...too many innings of baseball that had me squirming like I was sitting on a hard bleacher bench.

What I really liked was the conversation it stimulated over dinner afterwards. Was the con justified in any way? What's the right way to pick a rec team? Would Mickey's teammates really have behaved the way they did post-revelation? Does our government run on back room deals? Not too many flicks, books or news get as much airing in our family. For that, and that alone, I appreciated Mickey.
