Goofs

In the championship game at the beginning of the movie the scoreboard shows Norway on bottom, meaning they are the home team and they would bat last. The scoreboard shows that Norway had scored 1 run in the 6th inning. But, they had not even been to bat in that inning. But the run is moved from the sixth inning to the seventh inning a few moments later so its simply a scoreboard operator error. See more »

One of the best baseball movies ever
26 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of the best baseball movies I have ever seen. It is not only very inspirational but heartwarming and asks a very personal question that we must all answer-"what do you want to be remembered for."

Kent Stock takes a very difficult situation of having to motivate the players of Norway High School with them facing their final season of the baseball program, let alone, the final year of their high school ever existing again, and motivates his players to play up to their best potential in capturing an astounding record 20th state championship in Iowa baseball.

This movie should be shown to every high school baseball team whether they be a large, medium, or small school, as well as shown to every coach, no matter what level of athletes they coach.
