| Great Movie.
I recently bought this, mostly because of my liking of the Little League World Series. After watching it, even if i didn't love the LLWS, I would have recommended it anyway. I loved how authentic they made the games feel. They used same uniforms, stadiums, even announcers in Brent Musberger and Harold Reynolds. They even used some of the same teams as in the 2001 series. The only thing about the movie I was a little confused over was the punishment the teams received. In the 2001 Little League World Series, a team from New York used an ineligible player. The team was stripped of all awards and games won during all-stars. These teams were only stripped of their most recent wins. They probably could have had a more realistic sentence, but I really loved this movie anyway.

Trivia

Shawn Salinas went with the crew to Las Vegas where they shot 18 hours of Second Unit shots, but Harry Connick Jr. did not go. Thus, in the scene where Glen and Mickey arrive in Las Vegas by bus, the shots that include Glen were taken in Virginia while the rest of the scene was shot in Las Vegas.


Quotes

Commissioner: They can throw curveballs and hit homeruns, they still listen to their fathers... most of the time. And what every dad wants is just one more season. It's the City Championship, the final game of the year. The father calls the pitches, the son ...


Goofs

In the LLWS Final against Cuba, the Cuban pitcher, while up to bat, hits a home run in the first inning. In the original shot his foot is still inside the box but in the overhead shot (01:21:13) his front foot is in the opposite batter's box and going by LL rule he should be out.


Alternate Versions

The original theatric release was 90 minutes long. The 2005 DVD anamorphic wide screen version from Anchor Bay is 104:15 to the end of the credits. The 2007 DVD anamorphic wide screen version from Feature Films For Families is 103:52 to the end of the credits - it is essentially the 2005 DVD version with a 00:29 Feature Films For Families logo clip added at the beginning, and 00:52 of the feature edited out for morality reasons. Cut from the coaches' bed check scene at 44:24 is the coaches talking about not having blocked X-rated channels from the boys' room and Griff's hastily switching channels to an ESPN news story on the Cuban team when the coaches knock on the door; the remixed scene looks as if the boys are watching the news story all along while the coaches want them to be concentrating on the upcoming Regional game against Reno Central (although their eyes are unusually wide for watching a news story). In the scene where IRS agent Seeger interrogates Mr. Prater about the false identification papers he supplied Tripp Spence (46:35), the bit about Mr. Prater's girl friend driving a BMW that is a lot better than his wife's is cut. In coach Bracey's bottom of the sixth pep talk in the championship game with the Cubans, his "Kick their butts" exhortation is cut.
