Films in which a ragtag group of participants in a team sport, usually with the help of an irascible but ultimately inspirational coach, transcend their differences and and realize their potential and come together to win The Big Game or get over their parents' divorce or stop Stock Evil Businessman from tearing down the local baseball diamond by playing his team of ringers who were all banned from Major League Baseball for flagrant steroid enthusiasm

Need not be a kids' team, i.e. The Replacements

Do the Longest Yards count? Does the Pope shiv in the woods?
