Loosely based on Joe Dimaggio not Babe Ruth; Dimaggio's bat was stolen at the height of the famous 56 game hitting streak. It was found and returned by a boy named Jimmy Ceres from Newark, NJ who searched for 5 days and found the bat. See more »
In the 'newsreel' after the World Series game, the voice-over says that the Yankees scored seven runs in that inning, and that Babe Ruth drove in four. This is impossible because of simple math. Babe Ruth led off the inning with a strikeout - one out. The next batter also goes down - two outs. The kid (third batter of the inning) then gets an in-the-park home run - one run in and still two outs. Then let's assume that batters #4, 5, and 6 get singles without scoring. Every consecutive batter who follows must then drive in a run (no more outs to give). So if batters #7, 8, and 9 each drive in a run, the Yankees have already scored four runs in the inning by the time Ruth comes back up to bat. If he drives in four more, the Yankees will have scored eight in the inning, not seven as announced. See more »
And it just goes to show you... You can be the smallest, you can be the weakest, you can be the worst player on the field, but when people tell you you're no good, and say you should give it up, you know what you do? You just keep on swinging.

OK, I know it was a kid's movie, but couldn't they have picked another team to be the villains of the movie? LOL, OK, but other than that I watched Everyone's Hero last night, wasn't too sure what it was about before I watched it, and I checked out the rating on IMDb, 5.4 isn't that good for an animated film that usually gets 6.0 or above. But I can understand why, Everyone's Hero didn't really blow me away or got me excited. I'm not basing this on the fact that I'm a Cubs fan, just the story was alright, it's perfect for a kid's movie, it's just a good clean cut story, but for adults, it doesn't really give anything for them to enjoy it with their kids. But while this movie was probably aimed for the kids, it seemed like the writer was maybe expecting like another Shrek or The Incredables, where the whole family could enjoy it, but it ended up being just a kid's flick.
Yankee Irving is a young boy who isn't that good at baseball, but he has big dreams to play as a New York Yankee. It's 1932, his hero is Babe Ruth, and Babe Ruth has a lucky bat, Darlin', but Darlin' is taken by the Cub's pitcher, Lefty, to win the World Series. Yankee's dad is fired from Yankee Stadium, he's the janitor, so it was his job to make sure that everything was secure. Yankee finds a ball that can talk to only him; together they go to look for the bat, they find it, but want to take it to Chicago to give it to Babe Ruth himself. But Yankee has to make sure to keep it away from Lefty and the Cubs manager.
Everyone's Hero isn't a bad movie by any means, it's just a kid's movie, I guess I was expecting more. Not to mention the Cubs bashing was hurtful, sorry, I'm from Chicago, if you're a Cubs fan, you can definitely relate on this subject, you must be faithful to them, LOL. OK, back to the movie, the movie is cute and has a charming story, but it wasn't anything that stood out for me. I could understand the 5.4 rating, I'm sorry to the writers and cast, but Everyone's Hero is just a kid's movie, nothing more.
