rust into the role of an everyday starter, as he suddenly finds himself with a final shot at glory in "One Last Season." Heading into a road trip ahead of the All Star break, Fred has found a groove and is on a hitting streak. Yet he must confront two undeniable realities.

"One Last Season" is a thrilling and emotional tale that celebrates the game of baseball, the special bond shared by teammates and fellow competitors, and the enduring prospect of being able to come through in the clutch and prove oneself when it matters most.
