Plot Summary

In this documentary, New York city sculptor Jeremy Spear decides to temporarily abandon his artistic endeavors and return to sports, his first love. Relying on his background in baseball, he joins a fast-pitch softball team, the Abbott Labs, based in Ashland, Ohio. Spear films his experiences as a player, and explores the business sponsorships behind the teams while taking a look at the disparate dreamers who view fast-pitch softball as a stepping stone toward a career in professional baseball.
