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

The commentary notes (01:01:14) that the North Vegas (U.S. West) team is mistakenly shown coming out of the Visitor dugout to take the field to begin their first Little League World Series game against the Gulf States team - the home team always takes the field first. See more »

Not your typical Hollywood fanfare
30 May 2004 | by (Williamsport, PA) – See all my reviews

I decided to take in this film primarily because it showcases the premier event of my hometown, by virtue of which has allowed me its access. I went in with few expectations, and left feeling quite satisfied. This film certainly ventures from the typical Hollywood fluff one might expect from a movie featuring Little League Baseball, casting a dark aura about an event cherished for its purity. Some off-beat humor slips in from time to time, as well as some stunning contrast of emotion rarely seen in mainstream films. I also paid attention to many of the details, given that I spent my childhood late Augusts watching the games at Lamade Stadium. I will say I would have loved to see in some of the shots children sliding down the upper hill behind Lamade on pieces of cardboard boxes, which has become a trademark of Little League Baseball ambiance, but I understand the absence. All in all, good viewing, and a shame that this film will likely pass into relative obscurity.
