When the cast is removed from his severely broken arm, clumsy 12-year old Henry Rowengartner (Thomas Ian Nicholas) is shocked to find his arm has become a 100 mile per-hour thunderbolt. His throw from the bleachers directly to home plate alerts the last place Chicago Cubs, and before you can shout "play ball!" he is signed as their new ace pitcher. With a few pointers from an aging star pitcher (Gary Busey), young Henry could manage to pull off the impossible.

Movie Summary

Discovered while playing amateur baseball, Jerome Dean, a brash loudmouth with the skills to back it up, is signed by the St. Louis Cardinals and sent to play on a minor league Texas farm team. While in Texas, Dean meets and marries Patricia Nash, and before long is a starting pitcher for the Cards. Nicknamed 'Dizzy' for his colorful antics both on and off the field, his brother Paul, nicknamed 'Daffy' by the press, soon joins him on the team, and together they lead the Cardinals to victory in the 1934 World Series. Plagued by an arm injury that never fully healed, Dean is forced out of baseball and retreats into the bottle, neglecting everything including his wife.
