Storyline

When the owner of the Minnesota Twins dies suddenly, his will bequeaths the team to his grandson Billy, a devotee of baseball who, although only 12, has devoured voluminous lore, knows the team intimately, and has shown an uncanny sixth sense of what they need to improve. They hate their manager, so Billy quickly fires the SOB, winning their instant approval. However, this turns to dismay when he announces their new manager: Billy Heywood. How will Billy convince a gang of proud, tough men to stick around and take orders from a kid? On the other hand, what's to lose-- the team has nowhere to go but up.

Trivia

There is a conversation between the kids at McDonalds about whether or not Batman eats fast food and one of the kids says it would be hard to imagine the Batmobile going through the drive thru. The very next year, Batman himself references going through the drive thru in the opening moments of Batman Forever (1995). See more »

Goofs

At the beginning of the film when Billy's three teammates are on third base, the umpire calls everyone out and then is corrected by Billy. However, none of the runners were tagged by the defense so at that time, no one was out. The runner who was standing on the base could have run back to second base and the batter-runner could have run back to first base (touching second) on the way. In essence, all three runners could have been safe at the end of the play if they had returned to other bases. See more »

Quotes

Joey: [at school] If I owned the Twins, I wouldn't even show up here. I'd just hire a bunch of scientists to do my homework. I mean, if you're rich you don't have to be smart. That's the whole beauty of this country.
