A Texas baseball coach makes the major league after agreeing to try out if his high school team made the playoffs.
In the district championship game, with the Owls down 2-1, "Wacko" Campos is up to bat, and sends an extra-base hit to right field that scores the tying run, even when third-base coach Jimmy Morris tries to hold the runner. There are two shots during that scene where you can see the real-life Jim Morris and his wife Lorri (both wearing sunglasses) rooting the team from behind the backstop. He's sporting his trademark mustache and is wearing a gray t-shirt.
Jimmy: No buts about it... I'm getting enough butts as it is.
The Tampa catcher is wearing grey shin guards and a grey chest protector in every shot up to and including Jimmy Morris taking the mound in Texas. However, when he begins pitching, the catcher is wearing a black chest protector and shin guards.
