Goofs

Early in the film, some boys stop to watch two men on a bridge catch a fish. However, the fish doesn't move as they reel it in - its obviously a prop or a dead fish that was previously placed on the line for them to pull out. See more »

Great For Boys Of A Certain Age
27 March 2007 | by lpryluckSee all my reviews

I first saw this movie in The Bronx as a nine-year old Yankees fan. I loved it then, and still enjoyed seeing it much more recently. Sure the acting was bad (after seeing it one of his teammates advised Roger Maris to end his 1962 holdout and sign his Yankees contract fast), and the script was lame (but with its simple plot and moral not really much worse than the typical Disney or other kid fare of the time), but that was always beside the point. It was and is a chance to see our heroes on the big screen in their prime rather than on a small-screen TV or from the bleachers. We watch 1950s teen movies with their lip-synced performances for the same reason. The game now is to try to identify the players in the background.
