Crass, foul-mouthed retired baseball manager Hack O'Callahan finds out he has liver cancer, & only months to live. Instead of seeking treatment, he worms his way into managing a Minor League baseball team for one more season, keeping his cancer a secret. What Hack doesn't bank on is that some of his players keep secrets of their own, dark secrets that could tear the team apart.
