Jack Cooper is a failing baseball star, struggling to maintain his place on the professional baseball team he loves dearly. Jack is extremely talented but has a knack for choking under pressure so at every game, he succumbs to his anxiety and drags his team to failure. He eventually loses his place and is demoted to a class A minor league team. Jack is supremely disappointed but he is horrified to learn that one of his teammates, the third baseman, is a chimpanzee named Ed. On top of this, he learns quickly that Ed is his "roommate", meaning Jack is responsible for the primate's care. However, Ed can more than do his job--he is actually a fantastic third baseman--and with the kind of grace only an animal can possess, Ed helps bring Jack into his full potential.
