Trivia

Under an early deal with the MLB the pilot was filmed at Dodger Stadium, digitally erasing palm trees and changing seat colors to create a new identity. After Major League Baseball reconsidered their support of the show, Empire Stadium became a combination of a Long Beach ball field and the CGI work of Stargate Digital, which created multiple decks of seating, light stanchions, city backgrounds and even fans above the real field's outfield and infield walls.

Better than a lot of stuff out there - especially reality TV
27 September 2004 | by (Dallas, TX) – See all my reviews

This show has a few clichés and a few over the top, Dawson's Creek-like moments (a 16-year-old talking about way back when life made sense?), but overall it seems like a decent show. Most of the characters seem very real, and the story seemed to move along well in the pilot - ending with a good lesson in the end. I just hope every episode doesn't turn out to be life-altering like the first, that would just be too much drama for this vehicle. Jeremy Sumpter does an excellent job as a teenager with a passion for baseball, I believe a lot of us could relate to his awe and sometimes tunnel vision for the team that he always wanted to a part of.
