Plot Summary

Milwaukee Brewers player Stan Ross (Bernie Mac) angers his teammates by retiring during a 1995 playoff game after making the 3,000th base hit required to enter the Baseball Hall of Fame. Nine years later, a clerical error is discovered, invalidating three of the hits and keeping Ross from the ultimate baseball honor. The 47-year-old player convinces the Brewers to let him rejoin the team to make his last three hits, and sheds his selfish nature as he rediscovers his love of the game.
