Synopsis: Gus is a baseball scout. The team he works for thinks he should retire. He asks them to let him do one more scouting job to prove himself. His friend, Pete, asks Gus's estranged daughter, Mickey, if she could go with him to make sure he's OK as his eyes are failing. The doctor tells Gus he should get his eyes treated but he insists on doing his scouting assignment, which takes him to North Carolina. Mickey decides to put her work on hold to go with him and she wants him to explain why he pushed her away. Whilst there he runs into Johnny, a scout from another team who was a promising player Gus once scouted. Johnny and Mickey take an interest in each other.

A NOTE FROM THE COMPOSER

We didnít want to intrude on the dialogue or the dynamic of the film. Even thematically itís quite simple. We let the film just play and just supplement emotionally what is going on. Thereís a father-daughter story and that needed some musical theme. Gus, played by Clint Eastwood, is losing his sight and his career is going, yet he has this innate love of the game, which carries him through. That purity was another element. Actually, that was the first thing I thought of when working on the theme. That sort of becomes a thematic element throughout the film. Thereís no electronics. Thereís one drone for a flashback but that was created with Buck [Sanders]. Other than that, compared to many other scores, itís really simple. Itís a very small, solo-istic ensemble. There is an orchestra, too, especially in the latter part of the film, but itís really more of an intimate type of score.
