In “Major League” the new owner Rachael Phelps (Margaret Whitton) of the Cleveland Indians decides to run her team a little differently. She wants to move the team to Miami, but the team has a contractual obligation to stay in Cleveland unless attendance fell below a certain number. Her idea of how to get there; losing. To be as bad as possible, the Indians put together a rag tag team of veterans way out of their prime, ex-convicts and people who no one has ever heard of.

Then, after a period of growing pains, something unexpected happens. The Indians start to win. They are led by veteran catcher Jake Taylor, (Tom Berenger) rookie pitcher and ex-convict Ricky Vaughn (Charlie Sheen) and flashy speedster Willie Mays Hays (Wesley Snipes). The team learns to play together and finds a way to surprise everyone in this underdog story.

The acting in the movie is nothing short of great. Sheen’s ability to be humorous as well as the tough guy is great for his part and provides great energy for his character. Willie Mays Hays as Snipes is hilarious and the small, funny guy that is so easy to root for. The writers, directors and actors all did a beautiful job of putting this story together. They created a funny movie, but they also created a movie with character, including protagonists that you will want to root for and antagonists that you will love to hate.

“Major League” is a must watch for anyone who enjoys comedy or sports. It is a movie that anyone can enjoy. It is a greatly woven tale with comedy, sports and an underdog story, as well as a little romance. It has a something for everyone and will be a treat to anyone who watches it.

Even if you aren’t a sports fan you can enjoy this comedy that will have you crying with laughter and on the edge of your seat.
