(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.

In the last game Mickey gives up a home run to Bulsa in the first inning, and he's the third hitter of the lineup. Then Mickey doesn't give up another hit and faces Bulsa for the last out of the game. This is impossible because if this happened the last batter of the game would be the first hitter. The order would go:
1st inning: 1 2 3 4 hitters.
2nd inning: 5 6 7 hitters.
3rd inning: 8 9 1 hitters.
4th inning: 2 3 4 hitters.
5th inning: 5 6 7 hitters.
6th inning: 8 9 1 hitters. See more »

It is so wonderful to see a movie about Little League. This movie shows the little league spirit and excitement of the LL World Series. Little League is the oldest youth sports organization in the world and it deserves to be showcased in such a wonderful way. The actors do a great job of catching the spirit of the movie the father shows that he is loving but troubled. and "Mickey" shows the youthful love of baseball and the struggle to handle the situation in front of him I have heard some say that this is the best kids Baseball movie since the sandlot and I fully agree. This is a movie that everyone should see and one that can be a true inspiration for all young people who play or love Little League baseball
