Gus Cantrell turns his team from a laughingstock into the equivalent of blue-chip stocks in this third Major League comedy that reunites five series returnies, including wisecracking play-by-play man, Bob Uecker.
Several players from different backgrounds try to cope with the pressures of playing football at a major university. Each deals with the pressure differently, some turn to drinking, others to drugs, and some to studying.
Gus Cantrell is a major league pitcher in the twilight of his career. He contacted by Roger Dorn, General Manager of the Minnesota Twins, and offered the role of managing the Buzz, the Twins' AAA team. Cantrell accepts but regrets it almost immediately. The Buzz is a dysfunctional no-hoper team, with an odd assortment of characters. However, Cantrell quickly sets about forging them into a winning team.Written by

That's it, it's over. I'm not a Pirate, I'm not a Yankee, I'm not even a Red Sock. I am a damn Buzz.

Thank you. Bumblebee, yeah, that's what I am, a Buzz.

This movie was better than ML II, but it wasn't better than ML I. I liked having at least some of the guys come back (even though none of them is Charlie Sheen, darn). I thought it was cool how Roger Dorn (Corbin Bernsen) went from a baseball player (Major League) to the Indians owner (Major League II) and now finally to the Twins owner. You'd think Pedro Ceranno had been playing baseball for so long that he'd retire, but instead go back to the minors? And how could Harry Doyle get caught announcing baseball for the Buzz? There's no telling what happened that got him booted from the Indians. Plus some of the names in the movie were pretty corny, like Leonard Huff. Although some of the comments I'm saying are bad, this movie wasn't quite that bad. There's a lot of humor and such in this movie that I like it.
