This one often gets forgotten about when people talk about Baseball movies. Titles like "Major League", "Bull Durham", "The Natural", "The Pride of the Yankees", etc. are all good/great/classic in their own right, but this one is just as good as any of them. It centers around a 1950's era minor league Florida baseball team and their hard drinking, womanizing, somewhat washed up pitcher/manager, Cecil 'Stud' Cantrell. After meeting Miss Strawberry Blossum and giving her a ride on the team bus (and more), he gets a couple of new recruits for his helpless team. One is a slick fielding, wet behind the ears kid with an obvious future ahead of him. The other is a power hitting, determined and talented catcher with only one very obvious problem. Stud soon realizes he could get his team something they've never had before- a lot of wins, and some respect. But when the team he always wanted too play for but never did makes him an offer he cant refuse that comes with a huge catch, Stud finds himself with his back against a wall and a huge problem hanging over his head.
It has great performances by its entire cast, which includes William Peterson, Virginia Madsen, Larry Brown, Dermot Mulroney, Henry Gibson, Teller (in a speaking role!) and more. Funny and entertaining, I honestly believe this deserves mention in the same breath as the above listed classics. If you don't at least like this one, then you don't like Baseball.
