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

The one game playoff between the Twins and Mariners lasted twelve innings. In 2009, during their last season at the Metrodome, the Twins actually played a one game playoff which would last twelve innings. Interestingly that was also a season during which the Twins owner (Carl Pohlad) died and left the team to family members. See more »

Goofs

When Billy Heywood comes out after the Twins lose the game and the camera does a 360 around him, you can see the shadow of the cameraman on Heywood's leg. See more »

Quotes

Best kid's (or adult) baseball movie
18 July 2001 | by See all my reviews

Between 1993-1995, many baseball movies such as Little Big League, The Sandlot, and Rookie of the Year came out, but I think that Little Big League was the most clever of them all. There were plenty of funny scenes that adults, rather than children, could relate to. It was well done and well acted. I enjoyed this movie and I have owned it since it came out.
