Alan Arkin gives a lovely performance as a onetime star pitcher for the fictional Chicago Barons. He tends to get a little cranky each year when the inductees to the Baseball Hall of Fame are announced and he's not on the list. This year has been particularly galling because his best friend and former battery mate (Graham Greene), from whom he parted bitterly, has just gotten into Coopers-town. But Greene died right before the announcement and has come back to haunt Arkin. So begins a touching comic odyssey up the East Coast in a Lincoln convertible.
