Editors Note
Note 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.
Plot Summary
Summary A veteran relief pitcher, with very little left in his arm, offers a helping hand to a young black rookie trying to make it to the big leagues. Teaching the kid everything he knows about the art of pitching, the aging veteran hopes to leave a legacy to the game, but the team's flighty, meddling owner threatens to destroy their relationship.
Los Angeles Times "...Surprisingly good....It's touching, well-acted, well-written and directed, done with obvious devotion..." 08/23/1991 p.F8
