I know some folks who stay away from "cheesy sports flicks." I am not one of them, and I enjoyed this--in spite of the fact that it is very cheesy. The premise is that a young boy gets transported back to the 1909 World Series with a magic baseball card. There's a lot of nostalgia and quaintness, and the story is very pleasant.
To tell you the truth, the part that bothered me the most about the whole film was when the baseball card shop owner was inspecting the card (with white gloves and a magnifying glass) and he proclaimed it "gem mint!" Even without a magnifying glass one could see rounded corners on the card, and then the kid promptly stuck it in his pocket and carried it around everywhere! Oh well, that's a truly minor quibble with an otherwise fun story!
If you like baseball films, stories that involve time travel, or clean family entertainment, you should try this!
The main scene is back to the 1909 World Series with two HOFers, Honus Wagner and Ty Cobb. You can see something about baseball cards, the notorious Ty Cobb's behaviors and the romance of Honus Wagner.
The story is lovely and charming while the pace is soft and gentle. Although the cast is not so well-known, they got the job done pretty well. Try to grab a DVD and watch it. You will find it worth the time and money.
