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

Two of the players on the Brewers are named Dylan and Pennebaker, which must be an homage to the director and subject of the rock documentary 'Don't Look Back'. See more »

Goofs

When the Brewers are playing Astros as they say Gervis is coming to bat it shows a shot of the scoreboard and it says the Astros are leading 5-1 but if you look they scored 3 in the first and 1 in the second and none in the third. Clearly it is the top of the 4th because the Astros are up to bat. See more »

If you like baseball, here is a good film for you. Bernie Mac is perfect in the title role as a Brewers baseball player with an ego the size of Milwaukee who retires just after he thinks he gets his 3000th hit, which he assumes will make him a shoo-in for the Hall of Fame. Many years and no induction later, he learns that three of the hits did not count, and he returns to the game to get those three hits. Mac does a good job and actually fleshes out the character, as his return helps him learn more about being a team player. I really liked this film when I saw it.
