Jack has a sizzling fastball, but does he have what it takes to pitch his team to victory?
Last season, Jack’s could always rely on his fast pitches to strike out his opponents. But now he’s playing in a new league where the distance to the catcher’s mitt is a lot greater, and he can’t get seem to get into the strike zone. Then Finn, a baseball coach at a local college, shows Jack some new pitches and tells him about Steve Dalkowski who never made it out of the minor leagues because he wouldn’t throw other pitches. At first Jack doesn’t listen to the coach’s advice, but with the season on the line, he realizes that Finn was right. Is it too late to change his game plan?
