Goofs

Umpires are shown wearing the micro mesh pullover style shirt in the movie's recreated games, a uniform that did not exist in 1990-91. In one night game sequence, the umpires are wearing the navy blue micro mesh shirt, something that wouldn't have appeared on the high school field until the 2000s. In the actual footage that is used throughout the movies, the umpires are wearing the "proper" powder blue button-up that was worn in the early 90's. See more »

It's Not Over Until The Last Bat Swings
4 July 2008 | by wordsmith_57See all my reviews

There are a lot of harsh reviews on this film, and it is puzzling. Sure the film has a formula feel to it, but considering how it is based on a true story, how could it not follow the standard underdog formula? The film caught the flavor of the David and Goliath aspect from many points. Small town school wins consistently against larger schools at the state champ level, second choice coach filling shoes of veteran favorite coach, town versus state politics, and the list goes on. The movie is entertaining and inspiring--look for those moments. Iowa and baseball go together and the movie captures the importance of baseball to a small town like Norway, Iowa. Sean Astin gives a likable performance as coach Kent Scott. Form your opinion and don't be swayed by the negative reviews. The baseball scenes are worth the watch all in their own.
