Aging minor league pitcher Gus Cantrell is planning to retire, but then Roger recruits Gus to be the manager of the South Carolina Buzz, the Twins AAA minor league team. Gus's mission is to make a real team out of a bunch of players who include ballet dancer turned ballplayer Lance "Lance the Dance" Pere, Frank "Pops" Morgan, Rube Baker, Taka Tanaka, Pedro Cerrano, Hog Ellis, home run hitter Billy "Downtown" Anderson, and Carlton "Doc" Windgate, who throws the slowest fastball in professional baseball. Gus ends up clashing with Leonard Huff, the snobby, arrogant manager of the twins. One night in Minnestoa, Gus and his girlfriend Maggie Reynolds are having dinner with Roger and Huff at an expensive-looking restaurant, where Huff challenges Gus to a game between the Buzz and the Twins, then Huff starts a fight with Gus, who accepts the challenge. The game is scheduled to take place at the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome in Minnesota. The Twins take a 3-0 lead in the 6th inning, but Billy ... Written by

Yes, sir, I remember Gus Cantrell from the old California AA League. That was before Diet Coke became my beverage of choice. Gus was a pretty fair pitcher, but he'll have to be more than "pretty fair" to bring this bunch close to anything resembling a baseball team.

Gus Cantrell (Scott Bakula) is an aging minor league baseball pitcher who knows all the tricks. Roger Dorn (Corbin Bernsen) hires him to manage his minor league team with a great prospect in over-confident Billy Anderson (Walton Goggins). Rube Baker (Eric Bruskotter) is back with the same problem as before. Pedro Cerrano (Dennis Haysbert) returns to baseball after spending time away searching for something. Taka Tanaka (Takaaki Ishibashi) has opened a putt-putt golf course but he's tired of the business. He also joins this ragtag AAA team. When faced with old nemesis Leonard Huff (Ted McGinley), he gets into a challenge between his minor league team and Huff's Minnesota Twins.
I love Scott Bakula as an actor, but it's a mistake to put him in the lead. If Dennis Haysbert is willing to come back, then it would be much better to have Cerrano as a new coach. People love the franchise because of not just baseball but the characters as well. It just makes sense to have an original character as the lead. I also didn't find Walton Goggins that believable as the new young prospect. He's not that young looking, and he needs more muscle to be a big hitter. And losing the Cleveland Indians doesn't help although that may be beyond the filmmakers' control. That's not a rub against The Twins. It's just that the franchise started with the Indians and there's a history.
