WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

When Barry Bonds set the single season home-run record in 2001, the scene at the stadium was pandemonium. Most people celebrated with the chant Barry! Barry! Barry! But a small group of fans in the right field bleachers were caught up in something very different: a struggle over the ball. Ownership of the record-setting ball, which was estimated to go for a million dollars at auction, was finally settled in court more than a year later. In a judgment riddled with language like mob, attacked, and pummeled, it was ruled the money be split between the man who originally caught it, and the person who finally ended up with possession. Vin, Phil, Sykes, and Ralph have all gone in on tickets to a Mets game where Barry Bonds record has a chance to be broken, and they're sitting right in the home-run zone! What was originally supposed to be a guys night watching the game turns into a fight over baseball, steroids, and an imaginary home-run ball. As history approaches in a controversial fashion, friendships are tested and secrets come out. In a world where records are followed by an asterisk and history has a price tag, is any man ever what he seems?
