Plot Summary

To scrape up some extra cash, the semi-inebriated, cigar-smoking, former minor-league pitcher and now professional exterminator, Morris Buttermaker, agrees to coach the inept little-league baseball team of young misfits, the Bears. Against the backdrop of a tough championship and an intense rivalry with the impeccable Yankees, Coach Buttermaker goes as far as to recruit Amanda Whurlitzer, the twelve-year-old daughter of one of his ex-girlfriends and star pitcher, and the troubled bike-riding baseball hitter, Kelly Leak. Under those circumstances, do Morris' uncoordinated boys have what it takes to start winning? Did the maladroit Bears bite off more than they could chew? Written by Nick Riganas

Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia Despite the remake having a higher MPAA rating than the original (PG-13 verses PG), the ratings board would not allow the remake to feature Coach Morris Buttermaker drinking alcoholic beer in the dugout as he had in the original. Strangely enough the board was fine with him spiking his non-alcoholic beer with hard liquor. See more »
Goofs When Roy Bullock first meets Buttermaker, Greg Kinnear (Bullock) flubs his lines. He says, "stop by and see me sometime, I'm over at Chevy Valley Subaru." The name of the car dealership, as referenced later in the film and as makes sense with standard naming convention, is Valley Chevy Subaru. See more »
