Highly recommended family friendly movie.
I decided to buy my girlfriend's little brother Rookie of the Year on DVD for his 10th birthday. I loved this movie when I was his age and he loved it every bit as much now. Its a great story for kids, especially ones who play team sports. I would highly recommend this family friendly movie to anyone.

Rookie of the Year (DVD, 2006)
Henry Rowengartner (Nicholas), 12-year-old Little Leaguer, has dreams of playing in the major leagues. One day, Henry breaks his arm trying to catch a fly ball (he slips on another ball that is laying on the ground) and has to wrap it in a cast. Once the arm is healed, the doctor removes the cast and discovers Henry's tendons have healed "a little too tight," thus enabling Henry to cock his arm back and fire it forward with incredible force.
A fateful trip to Wrigley Field for a Chicago Cubs game results in Henry's friends getting a home run ball hit by the visiting team. However, when they give it to Henry to throw back (per Wrigley tradition), his tightly-healed arm throws the ball so hard that it reaches home plate on the fly. Looking for a miracle to save the club, which is suffering slumping attendance, general manager Larry Fishman (Hedaya) tries to get the kid to join the Cubs.
For the remainder of the season, Henry has to juggle the culture shock of actually playing in the major leagues; working with one of his heroes, aging pitcher Chet Stedman (Busey); and time with his friends. Under it all, his mother, Mary (Amy Morton), tries to keep him grounded while resisting attempts by Fishman and her boyfriend, Jack (Altman), to exploit his newfound fame.Read full review

ROOKIE OF THE YEAR
This is a really cute movie. We bought it cause it has special memories for us. My daughter was at went with her church youth group to New Orleans 14 years ago for camp and met up with other church youth groups from all over that went also, one of the youth she met was Thomas Ian Nichols, the young star of this movie(he was slightly older than he was in the movie) and we got several snapshots of the two of them together. We keep this movie with all the pictures of the two of them from that trip.
