* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: This movie was made in TheSeventies, and boy, does it showcase that decade.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The studio originally wanted Creator/BurtLancaster to play Buttermaker. The screenwriter (Lancaster's son) vetoed that idea as he didn't want people to think he was playing off his father's fame.

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Tanner may be a foul-mouthed, racist, and sexist little kid but he'll be quick to defend his teammates. Especially when Lupus gets bullied by members of a rival Little League team.

* JerkAssHasAPoint: Roy Turner might have gone too far by hitting his son however he was right to be mad at his son for intentionally trying to hit Engelberg in the head with a baseball which could have seriously hurt him had the ball actually struck him in the head.

Creator/WalterMatthau stars as Morris Buttermaker, an alcoholic former minor-league baseball player who becomes the coach of the Bears, a cellar-dwelling Little League baseball team with poor playing skills and little hope of ever winning. To bolster the team's abilities, he recruits Amanda Wurlitzer (Tatum O'Neal), a skilled pitcher who happens to be the eleven-year-old daughter of one of Buttermaker's ex-girlfriends, and Kelly Leak (Creator/JackieEarleHaley), the local cigarette-smoking troublemaker. And, miraculously, the notoriously chronic underdogs start winning under Buttermaker's careful coaching. Now all that lies between them and victory is the championship game...
