What is 'Angels in the Outfield' about?
Roger Bomman (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) and his friend J.P. (Milton Davis Jr.) live together under the care of their foster mother Maggie Nelson (Brenda Fricker). One of Roger and J.P.'s greatest enjoyments is to sneak into the baseball games of their favorite team, the California Angels, currently in last place in their division. When Roger's deadbeat father, who is preparing to sign Roger over to the state, makes a sarcastic promise that they can be a family again 'when the Angels win the pennant,' Roger prays to God to make it happen. At the next game, Roger is surprised when two angels come down from the sky and help a player to score. Although Roger can see the Angels as well as their boss angel Al (Christopher Lloyd), no one else can. Following Roger's timely advice, Angels manager George Knox (Danny Glover) comes to see him as a good luck charm, until George finds out about Roger seeing angels and suspects that he is 'spiritually hallucinating.'
