Mickey is a 2004 American baseball drama film that stars Harry Connick, Jr., directed by Hugh Wilson (his final directorial effort), and written by best-selling novelist John Grisham.
Mickey was filmed in 2004, at baseball fields in Colonial Heights, Richmond, and Petersburg, Virginia, and also South Williamsport, Pennsylvania, home of baseball's Little League World Series (LLWS).
Grisham played Little League in his home state of Mississippi. He wrote the first draft for Mickey in 1995, inspired by his Little League experience as a coach. Grisham and director Wilson live in the Virginia area where much of the filming took place.
Mickey was only the second film, after 1994's Little Giants, to receive permission to use the Little League trademarks.
