There comes a time in every '90s kid's life when he's forced to decide between Little Big League and Rookie of the Year, easily the decade's finest films about kids getting their shot in the big leagues. In Rookie, which the New Beverly presents on an archival 35mm print courtesy of 20th Century Fox, an arm injury leaves 12-year-old Henry Rowengartner with the ability to launch 100 mph heaters. As there's nothing in the rule book that says a kid can't pitch in the majors, this naturally leads to a contract with the Cubs. We may never know what "funky butt-loving" actually means, but we're all the better for having heard it.
