Touching, funny, and sweet. Luke Edwards does a really good job. Baseball just works really well in the movies.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis:
A 12-year-old boy inherits the Minnesota Twins from his grandfather, and decides to manage the baseball team himself. Could have and should have been a cute family movie, but it has no energy--and goes on forever. Special appearances by real-life major leaguers Ken Griffey, Jr. , Lou Piniella, Sandy Alomar, Jr. , Tim Raines, Wally Joyner, and others. Directing debut for producer Scheinman.
