Very refreshing movie depicting life in small town Iowa. Movie shows there is no restrictions in a small town for everyday good living and how the small town can surface on top, but when narrow minded supervisors have to have it their way, it gets thrown in the garbage. I am glad Norway, Iowa had good sense to keep baseball on the front burner by putting their effort into little league.

Good honest portrayal of small town baseball, what it means to a community and how in many small town communities a small school district is politically taken over by a larger school district. Tugs at the heart strings, the hoosers for baseball on a smaller level.
I wouldn't put it up there with Field of Dreams but it is certainately a very good movie. If you like baseball or just want a family friendly movie this is a must see. Don't trust the critics, they don't know a great movie when its right in front of them.
Just got home from the movie- it was Awesome!!!!!. Great Acting, great portrayal of what actually happened, and what was even better- mild swearing, no nudity or wild sex, no drugs- no one was killed, It was just a awesome movie showing hard work and desire can win the game. To bad a;; the critics are caught up on blood, guts, foul language, sex, drugs and death. Maybe if we had more
