A touching true story about a 35-year-old baseball coach who becomes one of the oldest rookies ever to play major league baseball. Jim Morris dropped out of minor league baseball because of an injury to his pitching arm, but 12 years later he is inspired by the young men on his high school team. He promises that if they make the playoffs, he'll try out as a pitcher on a professional baseball team. When the team makes the playoffs, Jim tries out for the Tampa Bay Devil Rays and steps up to the mound as the oldest major league rookie in nearly three decades.
