Roger, who has lost his mother, is living separated from his father. As he and his friend J.P. are fans of the California Angels baseball team, he has got only two dreams: living together with a real family and seeing the Angels winning the Pennant.Written by

During the "road" game with the Yankees George Knox looks over to J.P. and Roger who are at the game. Given that the Angels were in a pennant race and it was late in the season, the game would have been played in September. Also Roger and J.P. would have been back in school by now and it would have been impossible for Knox to take the boys out of school and fly them to New York and sit by the dugout. The Yankees (and all other Major League clubs) forbid the visiting team to have guests sent in the front row by the dugout. In actuality, the boys would have been Knox's guests and would be sitting in the press box at Yankee Stadium where most visiting teams wives and children set for away games. See more »
Roger, do you believe in heaven?
I guess. That's where they said my mom went.

This movie was Good!
I saw this film on TV many years ago and I saw this film when I got this on tape. I thought that this was reasonably well done. It was not the best of all movies, but it was good enough. The movie has enough talent to inspire many people, especially younger kids. The acting was good, with Danny Glover leading the cast. The plot line was not very believable, but the script was well written. This movie can also be the interest of avid baseball fans. It does not directly apply to a action-packed sports movie. It directly applies to a nice film that you can watch with your family and learn some messages that are hidden in this film. Overall, the film was good, but not great. I give this a movie a 7/10.
