It is a shame,,it is overlooked,,but it is appriciated by some,,including me,,,,,
Make that four. I loved this movie. Cliches and all.
It reminds me a lot of "Breaking Away". In both movies the sport covered in each movie is not what the entire movie is about. Its a gem that I stumbled upon years ago when channel surfing and I was hooked - the first scene I caught was the ride down into the coal mine.
Check your local Wal Mart - mine had a few copies last time I was in and I'm kicking myself for not grabbing it when I was there. I hope there are still some there in the morning. :)
Yea i got it in the 5 dollar bin at Walmart, it's a good one to have and watch when nothing else is on, and you're in the mood for baseball!
"Third place is...you're fired!"
Because even though it is a wonderful "feel good" movie it is only an "ok" baseball movie.
For a truly great baseball movie few have ever heard of, see "Long Gone" from 1987.
