Synopsis


Rookie of the Year
Rookie of the Year is a light-hearted comedy about a 12-year-old baseball fan who, despite his love for the sport, can't play the game at all. During one Little League contest, he breaks his arm. After it heals, it miraculously becomes a super-human arm that can out-pitch any player in the major leagues. The boy joins the Chicago Cubs and helps lead them to the World Series. Though the plot is silly and contrived, it's a pleasant film that is ideal for young sports fans. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

    A fun and extraordinary and hard to believe plot. An average youngster, who can barely compete on the ball field, sustains an injury and undergoes surgery. The result of the surgery is a remarkable arm speed - he literally cranks-up his arm and lets it loose and throws high-speed pitches, sometimes wildly out of control. He is noticed by professional scouts and is recruited to play in the majors. Unbelievable as it is, it is simply fun to watch. And if you love baseball, you can enjoy it with your grandsons over and over.

    the Cubs Really Could Use a Pitcher Like This

    'Rookie of the Year,' is fun family entertainment, and in reality, the Chicago Cubs could really use a pitcher like this considering its been a century since they won their last championship. Widescreen and full-screen viewing options. Daniel Stern is great in this one. Recommended!

    Movie was great, minus one star because it was packaged such that it could be shoved in my mailbox. Was afraid the case could be broken, but it wasn't.

    The review of the product itself is fine - just a normal DVD. The movie is fun for our younger baseball loving son.
