"A wild team of misfits think that they can make it big. What's a coach to do with a chronic nose-picker, a flatulent fielder, an out of control pitcher, a juvenile delinquent and the prettiest girl in the state? Turn this bunch of losers into a winning team! When their new coach enlists an unusual new teammate, it's a whole new ballgame as they band together to win their first championship, determined to prove that losers can be winners, too."

Cunningham said in Crystal Lake Memories: The Complete History of Friday the 13th (2005) he believed that the film cost $250,000 to make, "if that. It could be much lower. It was guerrilla filmmaking. It was all kids from the little leagues; it was like being on a three-week field trip with a bunch of sixth-graders. It was good and bad, frustrating and exciting. I loved it."
Victor Miller, who wrote the film under the pseudonym Arch McCoy, said: "Those were the days when everybody said, 'What America needs is a good G-rated movie.' I guess Here Come the Tigers made its money back, but they lied about America wanting G-rated films."
