Trivia

In 2003, a 15th anniversary celebration of the film at the National Baseball Hall of Fame was cancelled by Hall of Fame president Dale Petroskey. Petroskey, who was on the White House staff during the Reagan administration, told Tim Robbins that the actor's public opposition to the US-led war in Iraq helped to "undermine the U.S. position, which could put our troops in even more danger." Kevin Costner, a self-described libertarian, defended Robbins and Susan Sarandon, saying, "I think Tim and Susan's courage is the type of courage that makes our democracy work. Pulling back this invite is against the whole principle about what we fight for and profess to be about." See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Annie Savoy: [narrating] I believe in the Church of Baseball. I've tried all the major religions, and most of the minor ones. I've worshipped Buddha, Allah, Brahma, Vishnu, Siva, trees, mushrooms, and Isadora Duncan. I know things. For instance, there are 108 beads in a Catholic rosary and there are 108 stitches in a baseball. When I learned that, I gave Jesus a chance. But it just didn't work out between us.

Awful
30 August 2002 | by See all my reviews

I guess this film may be of interest to Baseball fans, but believe me to anyone else who doesn't follow baseball (and that probably includes 99% of my fellow Brits) this film is one big yawn from start to finish.

I can't believe it has scored so well on IMDB. The only thing I can assume I'm missing is something to do with baseball.

Even films I don't like I can usually find something positive to say about them, but I cannot find a single redeeming feature about this movie. It sucks (as you guys in the US say).

Acting, storyline, characters, all complete rubbish. I wanted to turn it off after half an hour.
