Summer Catch is a 2001 romantic comedy starring Freddie Prinze Jr., Jessica Biel, and Matthew Lillard. The movie takes place on Cape Cod, however, the majority of the film was filmed in North Carolina. The Movie is available on DVD.



Freddie Prinze Jr. plays Ryan Dunne, a local baseball prospect who gets an opportunity to play in the Cape Cod Baseball League for the Chatham Athletics. Dunne was born and raised in Chatham, Massachusetts, and dreams of playing in the major leagues. He helps his dad with his landscaping business and takes care of Veteran's Field, where the Chatham A's play. Ryan falls in love with Tenley Parrish (Jessica Biel), whose family vacations on the Cape on Shore Road in Chatham. Ryan is distracted by Tenley, and feels a lot of pressure from scouts, family, the Parish family, and friends.

The movie was also not filmed in New England because the spring season was too cold so the actual production site was in Southport, North Carolina. The Chatham A's baseball field that was used in the movie was actually built from a field that had been abandoned for about 20 years. Within about eight weeks the field was complete with batting cages and a press box ready to film. The majority of the people cast for the roles of the teammates were actual minor-league baseball players. Only seven of the 35 people cast for the roles of the teammates were actors. The baseball players had to attend a four-week training camp during which they learned how to ignore the cameras on the field and to feel and act more as a team. All of the actors and baseball players had baseball practice every day.
