in the pennant race against the New York Yankees. As young baseball sensation Joe Hardy, he transforms the hapless Washington Senators into a
winning team, only to realize the true worth of the life he's left behind. Featuring songs such as "Heart”, "Who's Got the Pain?" and,
"Whatever Lola Wants," a devilishly good time will be had by all!
