How Do You Want to Be Remembered?
From the director of The Sandlot comes the true story of an underdog coach and the team that must defend their legacy against insurmountable odds. In the small town of Norway, Iowa, the high school baseball team, led by legendary Coach Jim Van Scoyoc (Powers Boothe, TV's Deadwood), has won 19 State Championships. But the small town heroes are dealt a series of unexpected blows that threaten to rob them of their 20th championship win. When talk of a school merger gets serious and Coach Scoyoc is fired, then replaced by his 24-year-old assistant, Kent Stock (Sean Astin, Rudy and The Lord of the Rings trilogy), failure seems inevitable. Tom Arnold, Rachael Leigh Cook, and Michael Angarano join an excellent ensemble cast in this inspirational family gem.

"...some sweet, thoughtful passages...[a] well-meaning inspirational sports movie.  Tim Grierson, LA Weekly
"...heartfelt...[with] some sharp diamond action...  Ty Burr, Boston Globe

Editor's Note
David M. Evans's baseball oriented film is set in Norway, Iowa, where the game takes center stage among residents. But when the government steps in and threatens to disband the local high school due to the town's small size, a new coach (Sean Astin) must struggle to create a final season that the town will remember forever.

Professional Reviews

Variety 6 of 10
There's not quite as much corn in "The Final Season" as there is in the Iowa farm fields that run through it, but it's close. The quintessential sports movie (beleaguered players overcome adversity and summon up the grit to win), this David Mickey Evans-helmed cockle-warmer is overscored, underwritten sometimes awkwardly shot, but for the most part capably acted and armed with a story that's a sure thing...Based on the true story of the Norway High School Tigers, who won 20 straight Iowa state baseball championships before their school was deemed redundant, "The Final Season" recounts that ultimate 20th season -- when longtime coach Jim Van Scoyoc (Powers Boothe) was fired, his assistant Kent Stock (Sean Astin) took over, and the team was all but relegated by the public to the dustbin of schoolboy sports history...Production values are often subpar. The shooting is unimaginative and the editing is rough; Angarano at one point hits a ball in a batting cage while looking the wrong way, and a fantastic catch toward the end of the film is set up, via cutting, to be a physical impossibility. The loudest flaw, though, is the music, which is grand, heroic and as subtle as a fungo bat to the head; infield practice is scored like the burning of Atlanta. - John Anderson
