I guess I am doing some compendium pieces with yesterday’s post about a kid playing in the big leagues as today’s film is about a kid managing a big league team. This movie should be a hit with the fantasy baseball players, I mean you do spend countless hours managing a make believe team of players to hopefully be better than the other people who are also managing a make believe team. This will be like a shot of childhood straight to the pleasure center of your brain. For me, this was a natural progression in film growth as we got to see Rookie of the Year in 1993 and Hollywood loves them some similar thematic genres to mine, so Little Big League got made a year later. Surprisingly enough, this was a funny film with a solid dramatic lean to it that made it fairly compelling for a kid centric film. Time to grow up you snot nosed punks.
