Retiring minor league pitcher Gus Cantrell (Scott Bakula) is recruited by Roger Dorn (Corbin Bernsen), now owner of the Minnesota Twins, to manage ‘the Buzz’- the Twins’ minor league affiliate. Gus needs to make a real team out of this band of misfits: who include ballet dancer turned ballplayer Lance "The Dance" Pere (Kenny Johnson), Frank "Pops" Morgan (Thom Barry), Rube Baker (Eric Bruskotter), Taka Tanaka (Takaaki Ishibashi), Pedro Cerrano (Dennis Haysbert), pitcher Hog Ellis (Judson Mills), home run hitter Billy "Downtown" Anderson (Walton Goggins), and pitcher Carlton "Doc" Windgate (Peter MacKenzie) who throws the slowest fastball in the minors.

Leonard Huff (Ted McGinley), the ridiculous manager of the Twins starts clashing with Gus and giving him a hard time, challenging him and the Buzz to a game, a challenge that Gus accepts. If he proves his worth, he may even get a shot at managing the Twins…
