Overview
Conor O'Neil has a promising career as a lawyer that gets seriously derailed by a gambling habit that lands him in a huge heap of debt. This predicament is compounded by a drinking habit that's hard to shake. To get a loan to pay back his debt, he agrees to coach a group of ten-year-old boys from Chicago's poor, run-down Cabrini-Green housing project. At first he gives simple, token effort. As he learns the boys' stories and sees their lives, he doubles down on his emotional investment and becomes a father figure to them. Through the help of schoolteacher Elizabeth Wilkes, Conor learns to care more about the boys' problems than his own personal ones, and the ragtag group of baseball players bonds together and truly becomes a team.
