FULL SYNOPSIS

When has-been baseball player Jack Elliot ([[Performer~P64436~Tom Selleck~tomselleck]]) is signed by a Japanese team, he is initially reluctant to take the game seriously. Elliot is very successful, though, as he teaches the team about American chutzpah, and they remind him of the value of respect. He must fight his way out from under a slump to show that he deserves the title. ~ John Bush, Rovi
