Down-at-heel baseball pro Harmon returns home when he learns that his childhood sweetheart Foster has killed herself. It's up to him to dispose of her ashes. Lame melodrama, pitched firmly at the emotions, which comes complete with syrupy music and excruciating flashback sequences. The baseball references are hardly an integral part of the story, but seem to have been tagged on to ensure a punchy title. Foster's intense, heartfelt, and entirely humourless performance as the young rebel with the death wish just about takes the movie to first base.
