    Season of Miracles has been praised by family-oriented critics and others for its positive, inspirational message. Edwin L. Carpenter, reviewing the film for the Dove Foundation, writes: "Season of Miracles hits a homerun and grandly shows that miracles can still happen. John Schneider is terrific as the coach of the team and he encourages the boys that, if they show heart, anything is possible. This movie inspires the viewer to believe!"

    Oren Aviv, President of Walt Disney Studios Motion Picture Productions speaking at the Movieguide awards as he presented Rusty Whitener his Kairos Prize for the film's screenplay called the film "a uniquely compelling drama about a group of twelve year olds and their championship little league baseball season, that is not so much about winning and losing as it is about living and dying."
