Catcher Crash Davis is closing in on a dubious record: all-time home run leader for the minor leagues. Trying to continue his career in a very unforgiving sport, Davis finds his contract bought out, and he is sent to the Durham Bulls. Seems the Bulls have a bona fide major league pitching prospect -- Ebby Calvin LaLoosh. The thinking is that with Davis' knowledge of the game he will be able to season LaLoosh and prepare him for "the show." LaLoosh does not know it, but there is another teacher waiting for him. Her name is Annie Savoy and she is the Durham Bulls' biggest fan. Annie is teaching a lot more than just the basics of the game, but it is sport nevertheless. Before the season is over, these three characters swing, strike out, score, and balk
