Storyline

Gus is a baseball scout. The team he works for thinks he should retire. He asks them to let him do one more scouting job to prove himself. His friend, Pete, asks Gus's estranged daughter, Mickey, if she could go with him to make sure he's OK as his eyes are failing. The doctor tells Gus he should get his eyes treated but he insists on doing his scouting assignment, which takes him to North Carolina. Mickey decides to put her work on hold to go with him and she wants him to explain why he pushed her away. Whilst there he runs into Johnny, a scout from another team who was a promising player Gus once scouted. Johnny and Mickey take an interest in each other. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Goofs

During the game of pool with Rick(Dick) Micki runs the table shooting the Solid balls. After the altercation where Gus threatens Rick, Micki is preparing to storm out of the Boots Bar she throws her cue onto the table. Anyone who regularly plays pool even in anger wouldn't disturb another pair's game so this must be her table. One of the balls remaining on the table is the orange 5 ball - a solid. See more »

Well Worth Seeing
21 September 2012 | by See all my reviews

Just got back from seeing this movie, and I enjoyed it very much.

I'm not a person who follows sports, and even though baseball terms were thrown around, I had no problem keeping up with the story. The casting was phenomenal; each character was portrayed perfectly by the actors.

The story may be a little cliché, but it was enjoyable all the same. The plot is about a father and grown daughter trying to reconnect over baseball scouting. There is drama, laughs, and even a few tears along the way.

I highly recommend this movie.
