It is the perfect summer rom-com with baseball, drama, and of course love, and also hosts a huge cast of the hottest young acting talents of the 2000s, with the likes if Freddie Prinze Jr., Jessica Biel and Matthew Lillard. Some of the cast went on to have red-hot careers while others seem to have faded; check out how much they are all worth all these years later!
