A bunch of Chicago poker mates tries out a new member of their softball team, bright shortstop, and as it works out all-rounder, Bobby Newman. He's college, as sports journalist, of their team captain and poker host, PJ. The veterans include her brother Andy and trusted college roommate Brendan Dorff, an irresistible womanizer, who is barely noticed when announcing another break-up with present girlfriend Wendy and moving into her guest-room as so often.
