About the Movie

From the director of Angels in the Outfield comes the incredible true story of the underdog foreign Little League team who inspired two nations. Clifton Collins Jr. (Star Trek) heads an all-star line-up of some of Hollywood’s brightest young stars as Cesar, who returns to his native Monterey, Mexico after his major league career is cut short. Moises Arias (Hannah Montana), Jake T. Austin (Wizards of Waverly Place) and Ryan Ochoa (iCarly) costar as impoverished baseball-loving kids who recruit him to coach their rag-tag team. Together, they beat the odds and overcome hardships and bigotry to compete in the 1957 Little League World Series. Screen favorites Cheech Marin (Spy Kids), Lou Gossett Jr. (Iron Eagle), Bruce McGill (Animal House), Emilie de Ravin (Lost) and David Koechner (Anchorman) are featured in this uplifting story in the winning tradition of Hoosiers that Boxoffice magazine cheered as "inspiring, richly entertaining, heartfelt…a perfect family movie."

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: So overwhelmed by its own based-on-actual-events tale that it can't find the tone to tell it effectively. – Neil Genzlinger, New York Times, May 12, 2014

Fresh: It's an unabashedly corny but occasionally stirring dramedy based on the true-life story of scrappy young baseball players from Mexico. – Joe Leydon, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: The heart of both the story and its telling do help in smoothing over other deficiencies, sweet and disarming in its belief that something like a baseball game can make a bigger difference. – Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: The film is perfectly mediocre, which is heartbreaking, not heartwarming. – Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune, Jun 24, 2010
