He may be just a clumsy kid, but when the cast is removed from his broken arm, 12-year-old Henry Rowengartner (Thomas Ian Nicholas) can hurl a baseball at the speed of 100 miles an hour! Not only that, but the Chicago Cubs have learned about Henry’s ability, and they want him to help pull their team up from last place. With help from an aging pitching ace (Gary Busey), Henry just might do it!

Critics Consensus: Rookie of the Year gets some laughs from its novel premise, but a high strikeout rate on jokes and sentimental fouls keeps this comedy firmly in the minor leagues.

8+ COMMON SENSE

Fun, far-fetched baseball fantasy has some salty language.
