Great Movie This is an awesome movie that I watched on tv for free. I wanted to buy it and show to my nephews. However, I didn't feel I should have to pay that much for something that I watched for free. This is why I only gave it three stars. If it comes down, I'll consider purchasing it.

The team went from worst to first, and Jim was soon on the road to becoming the oldest rookie in the major leagues!
