Morris Buttermaker is an alcoholic ex-major league baseball player whose life is going nowhere and works in pest control. He is given the chore of coaching a baseball team of malcontents. They have little motivation to play and a bad attitude. Buttermaker must find a way to get a ragtag group of kids with no discernible talent and turn them into a championship team before the team is kicked out of the league for good.
