Did You Know?

Trivia

Hugh Wilson mentions at 35:15 in the director's commentary that in order to show a batter hitting a home run, he would have the boy throw the ball up and hit it and then during editing he would cut to that shot just as the ball hit the bat. This helps explain the goof in the crane shot where the Havana Little League pitcher, Richardo Bolsa, has one foot in the opposite batter's box when he hits a home run. See more »

Goofs

In Cuba's first game the 10 run rule is put into effect and there are two mistakes in this scene (58:46). First a LL game only has 6 innings. They were in the 6th and Cuba was the visiting team so Latin America should have gotten their bats. Secondly the 10 run rule should have been put into effect after the 5th inning when the score was 10-0. 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.

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.
