Product Description:

Roy Dean is a 41-year-old pitcher for a minor league team. Long ago, he had his chance at the majors, but lost it. But baseball's all he's got and all he cares about until the team signs young Tyrone, a rookie with an arm that throws smoke. The two become pals and Roy Dean wants to give Tyrone, obviously bound for the majors, a few pointers. Unfortunately for Roy Dean, the lessons will have to be taught and learned very quickly.

Description by Buena Vista Home Entertainment.:

Pastime
In 1957, baseball is at its peak as America's national pastime. For aging minor leaguer Roy Dean Bream (William Russ -- AMERICAN HISTORY X, DISORGANIZED CRIME), whose dreams of pitching in the Majors died long ago, the love of the game is all that keeps him showing up game after game, season after season. But when the team signs on rookie Tyrone Debray (Glenn Plummer -- STRANGE DAYS, UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL), a 17-year-old black youth from the wrong side of town, Bream sees someone with the potential to achieve what he never could! As an unlikely friendship develops across the boundaries of race and age, these two ballplayers will inspire each other to become more then they ever thought they could be! Also starring Deirdre O'Connell (DRAGONFLY, HEARTS IN ATLANTIS), PASTIME is a heartwarming crowd-pleaser you're sure to enjoy!

Plot Synopsis:

A veteran relief pitcher, with very little left in his arm, offers a helping hand to a young black rookie trying to make it to the big leagues. Teaching the kid everything he knows about the art of pitching, the aging veteran hopes to leave a legacy to the game, but the team's flighty, meddling owner threatens to destroy their relationship.
