Baseball owners from all over the US come together to discuss the downfall of what used to be America's favorite pastime. Everyone's intention is the same: save baseball and keep fans interested and excited; however, some of the suits want to go a little too far. Baseball has always been filled with integrity, tradition, and loyalty to its fans, and everyone except one executive from New York (played by Wil Bowers), who wants to tamper with the game's nearly 150-year-old traditions. The New York executive, without any real power, does everything in his range of beliefs and knowledge to save the game. This begs the question, "How far will you go to defend something you believe in?" Watch this inspiring film to see how one man will do what it takes to stand up for what he believes in, this uniquely American tradition and institution. Written by
