Annie Savoy (Sarandon) is a big fan of her home town Class A baseball team, the Durham Bulls. So big a fan that she chooses one player a year to be her lover -- sort of to cultivate him as a man and as a ballplayer. But this year she can't make up her mind between the hot young pitcher, Ebby Calvin "Nuke" LaLoosh (Robbins), who has a great fastball but no control or maturity, and veteran minor league catcher Crash Davis (Costner), who has been brought to the team to prepare Nuke for the big leagues. So the two men compete for the affections of Annie, the two ballplayers compete for a future in the game, and the two veterans (man and woman) help get the young hotshot's head straight. Writer-director Ron Shelton put together this winning 1988 guy's sports/girl's chick movie out of his experiences in as a minor league player in the Carolina and Texas leagues.

The review of this Movie prepared by David Loftus
This movie follows an avid fan of a North Carolina minor-league baseball team who is the object of affection for two men. Tim Robbins plays a young up-and-coming pitcher for the Bulls, and Kevin Costner counters as an older seasoned veteran. Both men engage in a lovefest with the fan, beautifully portrayed by Susan Sarandon. The film provides a tasty combination of friendship, love and baseball.
