Major League: Back to the Minors - Movie Synopsis & Plot
Gus Cantrell (SCOTT BAKULA) has reached the end of the line. The burnt-out veteran minor league pitcher has thrown his last fast ball; this boy of summer has found himself in the autumn of his career. But before he hits the showers for the last time, his old friend, Roger Dorn (CORBIN BERNSEN), comes through with an offer. It seems that Roger, the owner of the Minnesota Twins, needs a manager for his Triple-A team, the Buzz of South Carolina. And since Gus needs a job, he is only too happy to accept.
Until Gus arrives for the Buzz' spring training, where he is confronted by a bunch of misfits instead of a minor league farm team_the guys can barely manage an inning without a mishap. But under Gus' tutelage, the oddballs start slinging mean balls. Pleased and surprised with the Buzz' winning streak, Dorn summons Gus to Minnesota and goads him into an exhibition game between The Twins and the Buzz at the Metrodome.
But when the game ends in an unexpected draw, Gus ups the ante and challenges the Twins to a rematch. This time, though, it's on the Buzz' home turf, with a gamble that can make or break Gus' career.
