Plot Outline: Seven years ago, a vain and jaded baseball star (Bernie Mac) retired from the sport as soon as achieving his 3,000th base hit, and his place within the select group who have achieved that distinction. Now, however, after three of those hits during his time with the Milwaukee Brewers have been disqualified, the Hall of Famer returns to the game, playing once again for the Brewers, to play a few more games and get back to the 3,000 mark, but along the way, he discovers that the experience renews his love for the sport, reminding him what it was like to be a young boy obsessed with a simple game involving sticks, balls and running in a circle, as he finds himself imparting some of this knowledge to a young rookie he mentors. (Angela Bassett plays a reporter who becomes the star’s romantic interest; Michael Rispoli plays one of his former teammates who is now his business partner.)
