Top Critic Reviews

Rotten: It's a shame that Christopher Reeve's final directorial effort could not have been a more fitting, and lasting, tribute.

- Bill Zwecker, Chicago Sun-Times, Friday, September 15, 2006

Rotten: Young boys may be enchanted by the inspirational adventure, but for anyone over the age of nine, Yankee's journey is ultimately a dull one paved with good intentions.

- Brian Clark, Austin Chronicle, Wednesday, July 7, 2010

Rotten: Sweet and good-natured, but ultimately it's as unremarkable as its animation.

- Christopher Smith, Bangor Daily News (Maine), Thursday, June 24, 2010

It's a cute family film that holds a good message for baseball fans, but the movie is a little strange in a fun way as in fun strange. (B)

It's cool to have an baseball with attitude and a feminine bat to boot. (laugh) It's alright, again, not my cup of tea, especially sports cartoons. Just the same its a good animation to watch with family.

A fun, reasonably well done family film. I didn't expect much and I quite enjoyed it. There are some funny lines and great "old school baseball" references, as a young boy comes across Babe Ruth's prized bat. Quite clean & enjoyable for all ages.
