John Roberts was the best baseball player of generation, but he never went professional. After not playing for 16 years he sneaks in the spring training and earns a place on the Indianapolis Comets. He lands a contract where he is allowed to choose which games he pitches until he looses. He starts with the first game of the season. However, in mid-April team management discovers John dark secret, one that will only allow possibly the most talented player of all time to play for one season. John is helped in his quest by old friends from high school and new ones in the form of the Indianapolis Comets players, coaches, and owner. He plays the entire summer, leading his team into the playoffs even as the team management fights to keep his secret hidden from the league and the press. In October, John gathers what strength he has left to face the World Series and the terrible exposure of his secret.We got pulled off the interstate onto an off ramp but it died in the middle of the ramp, so I pushed it to the side of the road (I had sprained my ankle ...
