About the Movie

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!

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: If you don't know baseball, you won't understand the climax. If you do, you'll find it preposterous. – Quentin Curtis, Independent on Sunday, Dec 6, 2017
