About Rookie of the Year (USA, 1993, 103 minutes)
Everyone knows that Henry Rowengartner’s dreams are out of his league—literally. But when the klutzy 12-year breaks his arm in a ballgame gone wrong, fate is on his side. The mended arm transforms him into a pitching machine, launching him into stardom. Henry quickly goes from dud to stud as the newest member of the Chicago Cubs! A memorable feel-good film that’s guaranteed to bring out your inner child. Starring Thomas Ian Nicholas. Rated: PG
