SYNOPSIS: A sports action thriller based on an idea from this article about blockbuster filmmaking: http://www.nytimes.com/1998/08/23/magazine/the-blockbuster-script-factory.html?mcubz=3. In a pre-apocalyptic near-future, where the world is riven by internal conflict, deadly armed terrorists from across the globe start hijacking entire baseball teams, holding them hostage, forcing them to miss their games, and wiring stadiums to blow, in an attempt to chip away at national morale. When the New York Yankees are kidnapped on the same Fourth of July weekend their game with the Boston Red Sox is taking place at Fenway Park, the Pentagon recruits an elite squad of smooth-fielding, power-hitting anti-terrorists to play in the absent team's stead while also hunting down the terrorists and rescuing the kidnapped hostage ballplayers.
MPAA RATING: R for strong pervasive action and bloody violence, and language throughout.
