PG-13 | | Comedy, Sport
A trio of guys try and make up for missed opportunities in childhood by forming a three-player baseball team to compete against standard children's Little League squads.
The stadium built for the final game features architectural details borrowed from several Major League parks: Yankee Stadium since the 1970s (the "wedding-cake" trim on top of the bleachers' wall), Wrigley Field (the brick-and-ivy fences), Fenway Park (the Green Monster fence), and Chase Field (the pool area behind right field).
What do you think of my future wife?
Old Man: I smell Cinnamon Rolls!
Richie: Oh, I smell Cinnamon Rolls too.
Throughout the movie the kids are watching the game via the Internet. They are using Netzero dial up but are watching the game at Broadband speed.
Originally, the end credit sequence had a series of alternate takes, outtakes and deleted scenes. These were removed for the DVD release and were restored for its airings on the STARZ Network.
