Trivia

Shawn Salinas went with the crew to Las Vegas where they shot 18 hours of Second Unit shots, but Harry Connick Jr. did not go. Thus, in the scene where Glen and Mickey arrive in Las Vegas by bus, the shots that include Glen were taken in Virginia while the rest of the scene was shot in Las Vegas. See more »

Goofs

The commentary notes (01:01:14) that the North Vegas (U.S. West) team is mistakenly shown coming out of the Visitor dugout to take the field to begin their first Little League World Series game against the Gulf States team - the home team always takes the field first. See more »

Quotes

[opening narration]
Commissioner: They can throw curveballs and hit homeruns, they still listen to their fathers... most of the time. And what every dad wants is just one more season. It's the City Championship, the final game of the year. The father calls the pitches, the son always delivers.

Alternate Versions

The original theatric release was 90 minutes long. The 2005 DVD anamorphic wide screen version from Anchor Bay is 104:15 to the end of the credits. The 2007 DVD anamorphic wide screen version from Feature Films For Families is 103:52 to the end of the credits - it is essentially the 2005 DVD version with a 00:29 Feature Films For Families logo clip added at the beginning, and 00:52 of the feature edited out for morality reasons. Cut from the coaches' bed check scene at 44:24 is the coaches talking about not having blocked X-rated channels from the boys' room and Griff's hastily switching channels to an ESPN news story on the Cuban team when the coaches knock on the door; the remixed scene looks as if the boys are watching the news story all along while the coaches want them to be concentrating on the upcoming Regional game against Reno Central (although their eyes are unusually wide for watching a news story). In the scene where IRS agent Seeger interrogates Mr. Prater about the false identification papers he supplied Tripp Spence (46:35), the bit about Mr. Prater's girl friend driving a BMW that is a lot better than his wife's is cut. In coach Bracey's bottom of the sixth pep talk in the championship game with the Cubans, his "Kick their butts" exhortation is cut. See more »

Not your typical Hollywood fanfare
30 May 2004 | by gumplordSee all my reviews

I decided to take in this film primarily because it showcases the premier event of my hometown, by virtue of which has allowed me its access. I went in with few expectations, and left feeling quite satisfied. This film certainly ventures from the typical Hollywood fluff one might expect from a movie featuring Little League Baseball, casting a dark aura about an event cherished for its purity. Some off-beat humor slips in from time to time, as well as some stunning contrast of emotion rarely seen in mainstream films. I also paid attention to many of the details, given that I spent my childhood late Augusts watching the games at Lamade Stadium. I will say I would have loved to see in some of the shots children sliding down the upper hill behind Lamade on pieces of cardboard boxes, which has become a trademark of Little League Baseball ambiance, but I understand the absence. All in all, good viewing, and a shame that this film will likely pass into relative obscurity.
