-->'''Knox''': I can't substitute my BEST WORST hitter for my WORST BEST hitter!



--> '''George Knox''': One more loss! One more loss which could've been a win! And you call yourselves ''professionals''. I have never, ever seen a worse group of twenty-five players! You don't think as a team, you don't play as a team, you don't even ''LOSE'' as a team! You've all got your heads so far up your ''butts'', you can't even see the light of day! One more loss and I'll... I'll do this... (throws a chair at a rack of bats) to each and every one of you! (...) I want you ''here'' in uniform at nine tomorrow! We're going back to work on ''fundamentals''!

The 1994 Disney remake stars Creator/JosephGordonLevitt and ChristopherLloyd and is about a boy praying that the California Angels will win the pennant, mistakenly believing that if they do, he will reunite with his DisappearedDad. Roger (Gordon-Levitt), currently in foster care, had asked his dad when they will be a family again, to which his father replied sarcastically, "I'd say when the Angels win the pennant." Taking his father's words to heart, Roger prays for God to help the hapless, last-place Angels win. After he prays, a star unseen by Roger twinkles in the sky. Then, in a game attended by Roger and his foster brother JP, Roger sees a group of angels led by boss angel Al (Lloyd) helping the team. Although Roger can see the angels quite clearly, everyone else can only explain the seemingly impossible acts as freak occurrences. Roger's unique ability to see which players are receiving help from angels leads the Angel's skeptical manager, George Knox (Creator/DannyGlover) to keep Roger around as a good luck charm/consultant. Due to the much needed help, the Angels start to win games and make a surprising second-half surge to the top of their division, led by the angel-aided resurgence of washed-up pitcher Mel Clark (Tony Danza).

Standard kids movie film but a feel-good one at that which ultimately is about the power of faith wrapped around a sports story. The 1994 version was followed by two [[MadeForTVMovie Made For TV sequels]] , 1997's ''Angels in the Endzone'' (Same thing with ''Outfield'' only with football) and 2000's ''Angels in the Infield'' which replaced Christopher Lloyd with David Alan Grier as the head angel.
