Funnyman Bernie Mac brings his irreverent comedy to the big screen to star in this hysterical movie about an over-the-hill ballplayer who learns there's more to the game than individual stats and a Hall-of-Fame plaque. Stan Ross (Mac) once loved the game of baseball, playing with passion, energy and every ounce of his natural talent. But somewhere along the way, the fame went to his head. The self-centered star ended his career prematurely, shocking his team mates by selfishly quitting the game in the middle of the season, right after getting his 3000th hit - the unofficial key to baseball's Hall of Fame.
Now, ten years later, three of Mr 3000's hits have been disqualified and the 47 year-old out-of-shape former slugger attempts a comeback - hitting the gym and facing down pitchers half his age - only to find that three hits are a lot harder to come by than they used to be! The media love to hate the bigheaded basher and they're going to delight in ripping him for every strikeout. With only his ex-flame (angel Bassett) believing in him, for once in his life, Stan must either rediscover his passion for the national pastime - or settle for living as "Mr 2997".
