After his career in professional baseball is abruptly terminated by a severe shoulder injury, pitcher Jim Morris (Dennis Quaid) takes a job as a high school baseball coach and begins a family with his wife Lorri (Rachel Griffiths). But when surgery restores his powers, allowing him to pitch faster than ever before, he makes a deal with with his high school team: if they do well in the local championships, then he will try out once again for the major leagues. Based on a true story.
