Storyline

Those Cleveland Indians are at it again! After losing in the ALCS the year before, the Indians are determined to make it into the World Series this time! First, though, they have to contend with Rachel Phelps again when she buys back the team. Also, has Rick "Wild Thing" Vaughn lost his edge? Are Jake's knees strong enough to make it as a catcher another year? These and other questions are answered as the Indians recapture the magic and win the championship "their way".

Trivia

The real life Indians would actually end their AL Pennant drought in 1995, a year after the film's release. This lead some to dub the Indians 1995 season as Major League III. See more »

Goofs

When Jack Parkman hits a home run off of Rick Vaughn, the ball flight is clearly New Comiskey Park, even though none of the movie was filmed there. Also, the scoreboard with the batter's name on it is visible. It clearly says DEAN P is the first name and the first initial of the last name. The team on the opponent line says RANGERS, so that video was taken from a real game where 3B Dean Palmer of the Rangers hit a home run. See more »

Quotes

Harry Doyle: Hello everybody. Harry Doyle here, welcoming all you Wahoo maniacs to the year's first session of Tribe Talk. As you know, the Indians had a Cinderella season last year. Despite the fact that *toxic* owner Rachel Phelps wanted the team to lose so she could move it to Florida, the Indians won the American League East for the first time since divisional play began. Rachel's gone now, thank God, having sold the team to retired Indian third baseman Roger Dorn, after a long, hard fought...

Don't bother, even if you liked the first movie
30 October 2013 | by richard-1787See all my reviews

This movie is almost totally flat. The first one in the series was already uneven, but the end saved the day, and really got you involved in the success of the Indians.

In this installment, things just happen for no reason. For awhile the Indians are bad, for no real reason. Then suddenly they get very good. Why? Who knows.

Until we get to the final games, the humor is lame to downright disabled. Bob Ueker's character becomes an embarrassment, as does the Japanese player from Toledo. The movie just meanders along, going nowhere.

There was talent involved in the making of this movie, but not in the writing of this script. Couldn't they have found a script doctor to make this better?
