A high school baseball coach makes good on a promise made to his team by trying out as a pitcher for the Tampa Bay Devil Rays.
Jim Morris, middle-aged Texas high school chemistry teacher moonlighting as the coach of his school's baseball team, agrees to try out for a professional club if his squad wins the state championship; they do so, compelling an impressed Jim to be a man of his word and follow through on his promise.
