The down and out California Angels are so bad, one dysfunctional family even begins to compare their own tragedies with this baseball team. When 11-year-old foster child, Roger, hears his drifter Dad sardonically compare the two -- that the chances of reuniting the family are as good as the Angels winning the pennant -- Roger takes it as a promise and the truth. That night, he prays for the Angel's success, and in response, a star winks back at him with promises of baseballs faster than the speed of light and players able to leap tall buildings for a single catch.

Angels In The Outfield
Catch the movie that flew over the fence and into the hearts of millions of cheering fans! It's Disney's ANGELS IN THE OUTFIELD, the feel-good film of the year about a young boy praying for a father -- and a struggling baseball team praying for a pennant. Danny Glover plays George Knox, the frustrated coach of the California Angels, a ragtag team of major-league misfits who are down on their luck. But things begin to look up when 11-year-old Roger, their biggest fan, starts giving Knox some winning tips from a real live angel named Al (Christopher Lloyd). The team miraculously climbs back into the pennant race ... all the while learning to believe in themselves. With its heavenly mix of outrageous comedy, dazzling special effects, and amazing baseball action, Disney's ANGELS IN THE OUTFIELD is an entertainment home run for the whole family!
