Angels in the Outfield
Release: July 15, 1994

Based on the 1951 film from the Turner Entertainment Co. library. It stars Danny Glover, Tony Danza and Christopher Lloyd, and features appearances from future stars, including Adrien Brody, Matthew McConaughey, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Neal McDonough. Unlike the original, which focused on the Pittsburgh Pirates as the team in heavenly need, this adaptation focuses on the California Angels, who started play ten years after the original. The film does, however, make a connection to the Bucs by having its world premiere at the Pirates home at the time, Three Rivers Stadium in Pittsburgh. The film spawned 2 TV movie sequels for ABC's ‘The Wonderful World of Disney’: 'Angels in the Endzone' and 'Angels in the Infield'.
