The Nevada State Championship scenes (41:55-45:59) were filmed in a minor league ballpark with a standard diamond much larger than a Little League diamond. Hugh Wilson mentions that, except at home plate, the action was shot without letting the viewer see where on the field the players actually were. See more »
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 »
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.

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 »
It is so wonderful to see a movie about Little League. This movie shows the little league spirit and excitement of the LL World Series. Little League is the oldest youth sports organization in the world and it deserves to be showcased in such a wonderful way. The actors do a great job of catching the spirit of the movie the father shows that he is loving but troubled. and "Mickey" shows the youthful love of baseball and the struggle to handle the situation in front of him I have heard some say that this is the best kids Baseball movie since the sandlot and I fully agree. This is a movie that everyone should see and one that can be a true inspiration for all young people who play or love Little League baseball
