Reviews
Mine: A sweet, heartwarming story, all the more powerful because it is true. Baseball lends its self to film so very well (unlike football). Dennis Quaid gives a fine performance in the lead role. This movie made me cry a bunch of times, but I am an easy touch! Suitable for kids, but I'm not sure that they would enjoy or comprehend it. Kendra (6) fell asleep 45 minuites in.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: A Texas baseball coach makes the major league after agreeing to try out if his high school team made the playoffs.
