Terry Gannon Jr. was an All-Star softball player until life threw her a couple of curve balls - a baby, a lost college scholarship and a cheating loser for a husband. After striking out on her own, Terry and her son, Danny, move back in with her estranged father, Terry Sr., aka "The Cannon." As hard as Terry tries to keep Danny away from the sports-driven lifestyle that corrupted her youth, Danny continues to be interested in baseball, so when Danny and a group of other athletically-challenged hopefuls fail to make the local youth baseball team, Terry reluctantly offers to coach the team of misfits.
