During the off season, Bruce is diagnosed with a terminal case of Hodgkin's disease. Author is the only person on the team who knows of Bruce's illness, with neither planning on telling anyone. Author takes extraordinary measures to ensure that he is playing ball with Bruce during what will probably be Bruce's final season before he can no longer play.

There was nothing hokey overly melodramatic about this story, and
usually you get that with a sports story or about a good person dying.
In this case, we have a combination of the two.
This is simply a mellow, sweet-natured human interest story well-acted
by the two main stars: Michael Moriarity and Robert De Niro. Both are
nice to watch, playing very easy-going non-offensive characters.
Moriarty plays a pitcher on a pennant-contending team who lovingly
looks after his not-so-smart-but-dying teammate and friend (De Niro).
By today's standards, it's slow-moving but I never got bored with it in
several viewings. As nice a film as it is, there is one warning: a lot
profanity by the manager (Vincent Gardenia) but it's not a kids' movie
I watched it years ago and then again recently when it came out on DVD.
It's hard to get excited about it, yet it's a memorable story that I
could never get out of my head. We all wish we had friends like the one
Moriarty portrays here.
