When twelve ragtag teammates set out to play what should be a meaningless summer intramural baseball game, it ends up becoming the most important game of their lives. This collection of characters - the reliever turned starting pitcher (Tyler Hoechlin), a hot dog power hitter (Chace Crawford), an outfielder with anger management issues (Joe Mazzello), a player coach with clipboard envy (Duke Davis Roberts), an over-eager catcher (Ryan Pinkston), the old guy who shouldn't be playing anymore (Philip Winchester), and the guy everyone forgot was on the team (Matt Bush) - truly gives new meaning to the phrase "amateur status". As they struggle to transition away from baseball and towards an uncertain future, the best player among them (Aaron Tveit) - who they all felt should have gotten drafted - has to deal with the news that his big league dreams were dashed, leaving him grappling with why he should still play. One game can be just another box score, but when it's played by a team ... Written by Vertical Entertainment

In the final inning, Maz says that Palaco is batting after Murray, at #8 in the order, with David hitting ninth, Garvey's spot, and then back to Maz at the top of the order. But after the fight, Palaco replaced Ty at third, and would bat at his spot in the order, 3rd. Barone, the DH, would enter the game at catcher, but still hit in his same spot, 2nd. David, who replaced Vinnie in right field, would hit at Vinnie's #8 spot in the order. And since Barone, the DH, has now entered the game as a position player, Dels the pitcher would now have to hit, in Garvey's #9 spot. See more »

Negative reviews towards this film not being about "baseball" clearly have never played the sport. It's the beautiful game regardless of what stage it is just like Fotch says it's the game...we all still try to play it regardless of when and where. And even if you have no interest towards the game it still makes for a great film, there's a message for everyone in it.
