Synopsis

The baseball season gets off to a rocky start when the Durham Bull's new catcher "Crash" Davis punches out the cocky young pitcher, "Nuke" LaLoosh, he's just been hired to train. Matters get even more complicated when sexy Annie Savoy informs both men that each season she chooses one player to share her bed - and Nuke and Crash are this year's "draft picks!"
