Production

The movie was also not filmed in New England because the spring season was too cold so the actual production site was in Southport, North Carolina. The Chatham A's baseball field that was used in the movie was actually built from a field that had been abandoned for about twenty years. Within about 8 weeks the field was complete with batting cages and a press box ready to film. The majority of the people casted for the roles of the teammates were actual minor league baseball players. Only seven of the thirty five people casted for the roles of the teammates were actors. The baseball players had to attend a four-week training camp within which they learned how to ignore the cameras on the field and to feel or act more as a team. All of the actors and baseball players had baseball practice everyday.
