PG-13 for sexual content and language
An arrogant and jaded baseball star--who is revered by many, but liked by few--retires from the sport as soon as he achieves his 3,000th base hit. His goal was to earn his place within the elite group of players who have achieved that distinction, and he did it--or so he thought. Now, however, after three of those hits have been disqualified, the Hall of Famer is forced to return to the game and play once again for his former team, the Milwaukee Brewers, in order to re-set his now tarnished record and earn those three hits. Along the way, he discovers that the experience renews his love for the sport, and reminds him what it was like at the very beginning of his career, as he finds himself imparting some of this knowledge to an enthusiastic, young rookie whom he mentors.
