Under an early deal with the MLB, the pilot was filmed at Dodger Stadium, digitally erasing palm trees and changing seat colors to create a new identity. After Major League Baseball reconsidered their support of the show, Empire Stadium became a combination of a Long Beach ball field and the CGI work of Stargate Digital, which created multiple decks of seating, light stanchions, city backgrounds, and even fans above the real field's outfield and infield walls.

This is baseball, not a fashion show.

The young actor reminds me of actor Hayden Christensen, who plays Anakin Skywalker in the "Star Wars" films. Does anybody else see they resemble each other? I actually thought it was the same actor! This was a fine series. Some stories were corny but several were thought provoking. Two episodes come to mind. In one, Pete sees a player using drugs. He is seen and threatened by the player. Pete must decide whether to keep his mouth shut or tell. He decides to tell. He keeps his job and also wins the respect of the team. Another good episode was when Pete and his friend must undergo an initiation. Pete showed his integrity when his friend got hurt. This was a good series and like "American Dreams" on NBC, got canceled.
