Did You Know?

Trivia

(at around 47 mins) The director's commentary mentions that the sound of a train in the background is because they had to use the production soundtrack from when the film was shot and the train was actually there. Usually, after a movie is shot, the actors re-voice scenes so that background noise can be cleared up, but when the boys were brought back for re-voicing, their voices had all changed, making their re-voicing impractical.

Goofs

The commentary notes (01:01:14) that the North Vegas (U.S. West) team is mistakenly shown coming out of the Visitor dugout to take the field to begin their first Little League World Series game against the Gulf States team - the home team always takes the field first. See more »

Quotes

Tony: So... tell me about your boy.
Trip: [chuckling] How'd you know?
Tony: About every week I get a call from a guy like you, a serious baseball dad. Looks me up, and he wants his kid to be a Moose.
Trip: Yeah, well, he's a great player.
Tony: [grinning] Gee, I never heard that before.

Alternate Versions

The original theatric release was 90 minutes long. The 2005 DVD anamorphic wide screen version from Anchor Bay is 104:15 to the end of the credits. The 2007 DVD anamorphic wide screen version from Feature Films For Families is 103:52 to the end of the credits - it is essentially the 2005 DVD version with a 00:29 Feature Films For Families logo clip added at the beginning, and 00:52 of the feature edited out for morality reasons. Cut from the coaches' bed check scene at 44:24 is the coaches talking about not having blocked X-rated channels from the boys' room and Griff's hastily switching channels to an ESPN news story on the Cuban team when the coaches knock on the door; the remixed scene looks as if the boys are watching the news story all along while the coaches want them to be concentrating on the upcoming Regional game against Reno Central (although their eyes are unusually wide for watching a news story). In the scene where IRS agent Seeger interrogates Mr. Prater about the false identification papers he supplied Tripp Spence (46:35), the bit about Mr. Prater's girl friend driving a BMW that is a lot better than his wife's is cut. In coach Bracey's bottom of the sixth pep talk in the championship game with the Cubans, his "Kick their butts" exhortation is cut. See more »

Slightly thrown together, but strong.
24 May 2004 | by mslaterSee all my reviews

"Mickey" a very strong feel good heartwarming movie that got away. This movie is currently in limited release. It is about a father who just wishes his son could make it to "The Little League World Series." There is just one problem, The IRS is looking for the father who is suffering in debt, and Mickey is to old to play in Little League. Solution move away, and change your identity.The movie starts out a little too fast, and things are thrown together really fast, but be patient it's worth your time. This movie is currently in the middle Tennesse area. If it's not in theaters in your area rent this movie in your spare time. My take on the movies a very strong 8/10 !!!!!!!!!!!!!
