Threat advisory: Under evaluation

Movie propaganda

This film takes a provocative look into the professional and personal passions of Billy Chapel (Kevin Costner), a legendary baseball pitcher nearing the end of his career who is forced to re-examine his priorities when confronted with unexpected circumstances: not only is he about to be traded after 20 years with the same team, but the woman he has been with for several years, Jane Aubrey (Kelly Preston), is leaving him. In the midst of pitching a perfect game against the New York Yankees, Chapel, who has been the heart and soul of the Detroit Tigers, thinks back upon his long career and tempestuous relationship with Jane. Aware that the stakes in his life have increased dramatically, the veteran ballplayer knows that he has some serious decisions to make at the bottom of the ninth inning.
