Storyline

Stan Ross was a baseball superstar who turned his back on the game years ago when he finally hit 3,000 hits. Years later, he's now a successful, self-made entrepreneur whose many businesses revolve around his title: Mr. 3000. But a clerical error has proven that Stan is just short three hits of his spectacular hit record. Now, with time on his side and the potential to be inducted in the Baseball Hall of Fame, Stan must return back to the game and get back his title. But things have changed with age, and as Stan finds out, it's not too easy to get back into the game when he hasn't played for years, and he's nearing 50. Written by monkeykingma

Trivia

At the start of the film, when Stan Ross is walking to the plate with 2,999 hits (the first time), the announcer says "Will this be the at bat..." then states the date..."that Stan Ross hits number 3000?" TV announcer Joe Buck asked an almost identical question when Mark McGwire was sitting on 61 home runs. McGwire stepped to the plate and hit number 62, breaking Roger Maris' single-season home run record, set in 1961. See more »

Goofs

The first #3000 hit happens in 1995 at Miller Park, which opened March 30th, 2001. See more »

Bernie Mac & Angela Bassett did Their Thing
12 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Enjoyed this film primarily because of the great acting of Bernie Mac,"Guess Who", and his girlfriend in the film, Angela Bassett,(Maureen "Mo" Simmons),"Sunshine State". Bernie plays the role of a super baseball player who winds up having to prove himself all over again in the eyes of the Hall of Fame Judges. There are plenty of laughs and some very warm and sexy scenes with "Mo" who plays a CNN News reporter who has interviews with Bernie and has a quick tongue in response to his remarks about being in love and wanting to tie the knot. If it were not for the above mentioned actors, this film would have fallen completely on its head. Thanks Bernie Mac !
