PG-13 | | Drama, Sport
An aimless young man who is scalping tickets, gambling, and drinking, agrees to coach a Little League team from the Cabrini Green housing project in Chicago as a condition of getting a loan from a friend.
There are at least three players on the Kekambas team whose names we never learn, nor do we ever hear them speak. The only ones who speak and have their names mentioned are: Andre Ray Peetes, Miles Pennfield II, Jefferson Albert Tibbs, Kofi and Jarius "G-Baby" Evans, Raymont "Ray-Ray". Bennet, Clarence, and Jamal.
It was booty. That girl Meg is dumb. Thinkin' her fathers comin' back from wherever. That's stupid to believe in. That girl and her mom are both trippin'. Cuz where I'm from... don't nobody's father come back.
Jefferson Tibs first picks up jersey number 35, but when he bats he is wearing number 21, and then when he slides into second he is once again in jersey number 35.
The mayor of Chicago, school chiefs and coaches were angry about the kids in the movie using extreme language. After protests and saying it was "overly negative", the distributors decided to edit/dub all of the lines with the word "f*ck" to get a PG-13 rating.
