A widowed lawyer wanted by the IRS assumes a new identity and signs his now-too-old son up for one more year of Little League. However, this may have been a mistake, as his son's dominance captures the media's attention as his team careens toward the Little League World Series. Written by
Both John Grisham and Hugh Wilson wanted the three principal boys to be good baseball players and sent two casting scouts to Little League franchises across the United States. Shawn Salinas was found in Los Angeles and came to Richmond to read for John and Hugh. Then John and Shawn went to the parking lot with gloves and a ball where John asked Shawn to show him his fast ball. Hugh says Shawn was hired in the parking lot throwing serious heat to John.

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.

The IRS is after widower Harry Connick Jr. (as Tripp Spence). Since he doesn't have the money, Mr. Connick runs away to Las Vegas, with athletic young son Shawn Salinas (as Derrick). They darken their blond hair, to become "Glen Ryan" and his son "Mickey". Clear-glassed spectacles assist in the disguise. When questioned about the lack of prescription strength, Connick says his son is "slightly" nearsighted. Apparently, there are no school nurses in Las Vegas.
One of the benefits of the new identities is that young Salinas gets to remain a 12-year-old, because "Mickey" is twelve - so, father Connick can play him in "Little League" another year. A better idea would have been for Connick to find his son an older identity. But, many of the other "Little League" kids look older, especially the Cubans. If they are taking steroids, it isn't shown. "Mickey" is curiously immoral, for a "family film". But, Salinas performs the title role well.
