When the Grizzlies' first baseman is sidelined two days before the playoffs, catcher Manny Griffin and second baseman Stu Fletcher take it upon themselves to help his replacement, Sean, become a better player. The three practice together, and all is going well - until Sean unleashes a wild throw that hits Stu right in the head! Stu is dazed, but won't let Manny call for help, insisting that he's perfectly fine and the team needs him. Manny gives his word to keep quiet, but a few days later, Stu starts acting funny. Manny realizes then that his friend is anything but fine. Now he faces a difficult decision: should he break his promise and let Stu and the team down... or keep silent and hope that he's not putting Stu in danger?
