Umpires are shown wearing the micro mesh pullover style shirt in the movie's recreated games, a uniform that did not exist in 1990-91. In one night game sequence, the umpires are wearing the navy blue micro mesh shirt, something that wouldn't have appeared on the high school field until the 2000s. In the actual footage that is used throughout the movies, the umpires are wearing the "proper" powder blue button-up that was worn in the early 90's. See more »

Our family watched this movie and we were on the edge of our seats through the final credits. It's an inspiring story, and a well-executed movie. And it has deeper meaning than just baseball. We (two adults and a 10 and a 12 year old) all thought it was fabulous, gripping, and so fun to watch. And we then did some web research after watching it to learn more about the baseball program in the tiny town of Norway, which has been so successful for decades. Thank you to those who put this movie together, since it was a real treat for the audience! Whether you're into baseball (we are) or not, I think you'll enjoy the excitement of this story, the accomplishments of kids from a tiny town, and the challenges presented by mindless bureaucrats to life in small, agricultural towns.
