Based on a true story, a Texas high school teacher and baseball coach named Jim is a former minor league baseball player whose career was derailed by injury. He is pushed by his high school baseball team to attend a tryout and give professional baseball another shot. When he tries out for the professional team, he learns that his injury has healed and he is capable of throwing much harder than he ever has. He eventually works his way through the minor leagues, and makes it all the way to the Major Leagues, despite being nearly 40 years old.
