Program Notes

Bill Conti, of Rocky fame, wrote the theme music for this 1993 sports comedy film and listeners loved it! The critics described it as "orchestral fireworks" and "a heroic sports score, part Mozart, part marching band." An absolute "big league" piece for band that will hit a home run with audiences.

- Program Note from publisher

Rookie of the Year is a 1993 American sports comedy film starring Thomas Ian Nicholas and Gary Busey as players for the Chicago Cubs baseball team.

Henry Rowengartner, an unskilled Little Leaguer, dreams of playing in the major leagues. Henry breaks his arm catching a fly ball. When the doctor removes his cast, he discovers Henry's tendons have healed "a little too tight", enabling Henry to pitch with incredible force.
