Several players from different backgrounds try to cope with the pressures of playing football at a major university. Each deals with the pressure differently, some turn to drinking, others to drugs, and some to studying.
Gus Cantrell is a major league pitcher in the twilight of his career. He contacted by Roger Dorn, General Manager of the Minnesota Twins, and offered the role of managing the Buzz, the Twins' AAA team. Cantrell accepts but regrets it almost immediately.

At 37:02 after Dorn gets off of the phone with Gus there is a shot of the seats and in the middle row there is a person wearing a yellow shirt and ten minutes later at 47:01 when the buzz are in the stadium they show fans getting to their seats and they use the same scene as before. Note the person in the yellow shirt in the middle of the screen. See more »
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.

A very average movie with a story arc that's used in 98% of sports movies.
Scot Bakula is not bad as the ageing Baseball player turned coach, supporting cast are okay. Lovers of Sport and Horror films will put up with far worse movies and enjoy them. Made me smile, and I've seen a lot worse.
