||Roy Dean is a 41-year-old pitcher for a minor league team. Long ago, he had his chance at the majors, but lost it. But baseball's all he's got and all he cares about until the team signs young Tyrone, a rookie with an arm that throws smoke. The two become pals and Roy Dean wants to give Tyrone, obviously bound for the majors, a few pointers. Unfortunately for Roy Dean, the lessons will have to be taught and learned very quickly.
