Moneyball... kid's style!
Reviewed in the United States on May 18, 2022
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.
