Mickey

Every father who has tried to live out his baseball dreams vicariously knows it's time to pack away those fantasies on the stroke of his Little Leaguer's twelfth birthday. But coach Tripp Spence (Harry Connick Jr.) and his now too old son Derrick (Shawn Salinas), find a way (albeit an illegal one) to play another year on the scaled-down diamond.

How We Determine Our Grades

After watching a movie with your children or students, we encourage parents and teachers to look for education opportunities to teach with movies. Here are a few discussion topics that can help with lesson plans or teaching in the home.

How did Derrick/Mickey’s dishonesty rob him of the joy and satisfaction of his victory? Why can success never be built upon deceit?

Are there any situations when lying is justified? What would you have done if you were in Tripp/Glen’s position? Do you feel the consequences the characters faced were appropriate or realistic?
