Uplifting baseball drama starring Dennis Quaid as Jim Morris - an ex-player whose minor-league pitching career was ended by a shoulder injury twelve years ago. Jim is now a coach in a small-town high school, but he gets one more shot at the big time when his struggling team make him a deal - if they win the district championship, he must try out for a major-league organisation and fulfil his dreams. Has Jim got what it takes to make a comeback?
