Great minor league baseball movie
26 October 2003 | by leewestfallSee all my reviews

This is a great movie about minor league baseball. I recommend it to all baseball fans. If you're looking for endless car crashes and things getting blown up, forget it, this is not the movie for you. But if you're looking for a good, entertaining movie about minor league baseball and the people in it, you'll enjoy this one.
