Trivia

To get into shape to play baseball legend Honus Wagner, Matthew Modine was invited by Cal Ripken Jr to join the squad of the Ironbirds, a minor league baseball team owned by Ripken in Aberdeen Maryland. Modine's 17-year-old son accompanied him and the two warmed up with the team and also played in several training games with the squad. See more »

I love this movie.
23 October 2004 | by (South Milw., WI) – See all my reviews

I just want to say that I love this movie. But I also want to say that it's a movie not be taken seriously. It's a fantasy. It's a baseball fantasy. Just like "Field of Dreams." As a pseudo baseball historian, I appreciate the details given to the baseball uniforms, the player's gloves and catcher's equipment and both team's stadiums. I also like how the stadiums were depicted in a neighborhood setting with the surrounding industries, which in 1909, they were. I admit that the movie does try to convey a message that takes awhile to get across. But once it does, it all makes sense and it makes you smile if you can forgive the historical inaccuracies.

This movie won't go down in history as a all-time great, but it will always be one of my favorites.
