Curt Gowdy and Hank Aaron both make appearances in this film. Gowdy was the NBC play-by-play announcer in the booth when Hank Aaron hit home run number 715 to pass Babe Ruth on April 8th, 1974 in what was then known as Atlanta Stadium (later named Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium). See more »
During the season opener the announcer mentions that hitter Billy Brubaker has been struggling with the wood bats this season. Obviously he would not know this nor is it possible since this is the season opener. See more »
Mr. Parrish. Remember my son Ryan?
How are you doing?

I like this movie because i can relate to it and it is a baseball movie.. this is what all baseball players wish to do is to play in the cap code league in the summer after collage baseball season ends. so i like it cause it is a dream i and most baseball players can dream for and this movie explains what the cape is like. also it is somewhat of a romantic movie and the girl that the guy falls in love with is pretty smoking hot.. which is a plus while you are watching the movie. another reason why this movie is good is because it is funny at some points and you feel good for the guy when he is pitching. so this movie is a plus for me and fun to watch on summer nights
