When the owner of the Minnesota Twins dies suddenly, his will bequeaths the team to his grandson Billy, a devotee of baseball who, although only 12, has devoured voluminous lore, knows the team intimately, and has shown an uncanny sixth sense of what they need to improve. They hate their manager, so Billy quickly fires the SOB, winning their instant approval. However, this turns to dismay when he announces their new manager: Billy Heywood. How will Billy convince a gang of proud, tough men to stick around and take orders from a kid? On the other hand, what's to lose-- the team has nowhere to go but up.Written by

An unnamed player throughout the movie wears number 34, the same number worn by MLB Hall of Famer and Twins legend, Kirby Puckett. Though the player wearing number 34 is never featured, there is no reference to Kirby Puckett, who was still on the team in 1994. Puckett would retire the next year after being blinded in his left eye by a pitch. The number 34 would later be retired by the Twins franchise. See more »
When Ken Griffey Jr dives back to first base on the pickoff attempt his uniform is dirty and he brushes himself off. However, when he makes the leaping catch against the wall to end the game, his uniform is perfectly clean. See more »
Between 1993-1995, many baseball movies such as Little Big League, The Sandlot, and Rookie of the Year came out, but I think that Little Big League was the most clever of them all. There were plenty of funny scenes that adults, rather than children, could relate to. It was well done and well acted. I enjoyed this movie and I have owned it since it came out.
