In 2002, two rival Olympic ice skaters were stripped of their gold medals and permanently banned from men's single competition. Presently, however, they've found a loophole that will allow them to qualify as a pairs team.
Three guys, all their lives, have been living in the shadow of bullies and are determined not to take it anymore. Now they must train with the help of Mel to take on the most offensive and meanest youth baseball teams.Written by

Cincinnati Reds pitcher Jon Moscot was a fourteen-year-old extra in the film. He was not credited, as his parents were concerned his college eligibility could be adversely impacted. Moscot has said that he gave up seven home runs to Rob Schneider during the filming. See more »
When Gus, Richie and Clark are at Mel's house, Clark says "But, why would any of these teams agree to play us?". Right after he says this, in the bottom right of the screen you can see Gus picking up 1 of 3 juice boxes. These were not there in the previous shot and they disappear in the next shot. See more »

Originally, the end credit sequence had a series of alternate takes, outtakes and deleted scenes. These were removed for the DVD release and were restored for its airings on the STARZ Network. See more »
I really did not expect the movie to be very good. Don't get me wrong - I thought I'd like it (I love almost every baseball movie ever made) but I had no idea that the film would actually work on multiple levels.
The movie's short, but that's OK as it gets right to the point and never stops. Some of the humor is a bit childish (far jokes), but they actually balance a lot of it out with other childish jokes that make the earlier ones bearable (back to back fart jokes... I don't want to be more specific because it will spoil it when you see it).
I was very pleased with this film and will probably see it again while it's in theaters. If you're somebody who likes any Adam Sandler branded flick then you'll love this one.
