It's a human drama measured one inning at a time.
Bottom Of The Ninth covers an extraordinary year in the life of the New Jersey Somerset Patriots minor league baseball team. It takes us into the heart and soul of the world of professional baseball. A handful of memorable characters play out their dreams a heartbeat away from the major-league's multimillion dollar salaries and stardom that is so very close, and so very far away. It's the world of independent baseball...small-town, inner city and rural ballparks with parades and community barbeques. They are there for the game and the chance to recapture or, perhaps, grasp for the first time, the glory of the majors.
The stories are unique, funny, compelling and sometimes disturbing: Imagine, the legendary and colorful manager, who reached the very top, won the coveted Cy Young Award, became the highest paid and most honored second year rookie in the league and then his life changed. It's a documentary not just about baseball, but also about men chasing a dream while playing the game of life.
