Abstract:

Hardball: A down-on-his-luck gambler finds himself in debt to a dangerous loan shark. Desperate for cash, he reluctanly takes on the job of coaching a youth baseball team. The team turns out to be a ragtag group of tough-talking kids from Chicago's inner city. Now, as he must wrestle with his past, the kids start to teach him some lessons that will forever change his future.

The bad news Bears: A former minor-league pitcher gets roped into coaching a band of half-pint misfits somewhat loosely called a team. With this bunch in uniform, it's impossible to get caught up in the suburban competitive spirit that drives other adults to extremes of parental discipline. So, instead, the Bears have a good time.
