They are playing hard and well, but behind the scenes, one team official is promoting ill-will and dissention for his own purposes. This leads to great difficulty for player/manager Spike Russell who must not only manage his teammates but also play his own position. Added to the mix is a rookie player whose lack of maturity becomes a liability for the team. As the rookie player struggles to meet his potential as a player, Spike struggles to meet his potential as a manager.
