Mr. Destiny

Question: What about those kids he had, what happened to them?

Answer: Nothing, they're from an alternate reality, Jim Belushi was shown a possible future if he had hit that home run. A different life, job, wife and kids.

Question: Was it all a dream to him? Did he have a vision that his life was going to be like that?

Answer: Mike, as advertised, was Mr. Destiny. When Jim Belushi asked him if he was an angel, Mike replied that when Belushi is about to make a decision, he's the little voice in his head that helps. At the end of the film, when Mike tells the teenage Belushi that everything is going to work out, the kid replies, "What do you know?"

Thanks then Mike the bartender must have been an angel.

Revealing mistake: When Larry is camping in the tree outside Ellen's house, if you look at his face before he falls it is a stuntman falling, not James Belushi. (01:03:35)
