Moneyball... kid's style!
Verified purchase
Ok, Moneyball and Little Big League covered different areas in baseball, but there are some noted similarities. Both movies take the audience behind the scenes for a look at day to day operations, dialogue between manager and GM, trades, cutting players, conversations with players, big games, pivotal moments, and so on. Little Big League holds its own as the young manager, Billy, finds his way in his new role, and it's enjoyable to watch. The way Billy handles himself in team meetings, pulling a disgruntled pitcher from the game, and benching a player (Timothy Busfield) for dating his mom are classic, so treat yourself to this Minnesota gem. Timothy Busfield moves one state north after Field of Dreams...and those Twins fans who loved the '87 and '91 championship teams will love this, reliving Metrodome era Twins baseball.

Great movie for any baseball fan

A ten year old inherits the Minnesota Twins baseball team and as in movie land is allowed to be the General Manager who also coaches the team. The players reject him at first but come togther when they The young coach makes them remember what the game really means to them and the fans. Appearances by Ken Griffey Jr. and many other professional players. A short but brillaint apperance by Jason Robards.

Little Big League review
Verified purchase
Great film for all ages. Very good acting, even from kids which is hard to find. Very good plot and characters. It was very good that they were on actual major league sites and used actual players in many scenes. Most baseball movies have a bunch of baseball fan want-to-bez, but this film did not. At times it was very realistic. It truly shows how adults have messed us the game. The film was able to use great statistics and actual baseball information to assist audience members that are not familiar with the game. Two issues stopped me from rating it with 5 stars. 1: the sound was not very good. At times I could not understand the main character and the music was much louder than the rest of the film. I had to keep adjusting the volume. 2: It did show provocative images that in my opinion were not appropriate for kids. They could have shown less and people would have gotten the idea. Now I would not be allowed to show this to my students in elementary school. Not good! But over-all it is an excellent family film and worth the purchase price.

My family's favorite baseball movie.
Verified purchase
It was a toss up between this and "The Rookie." "Little Big League" barely won. A great show. It's also nice to see a team that isn't from NY or CA be the focus of a show.
