Trivia

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.

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 »

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.
