Max Morris (Garlin) is a comedian and a father. He’s also of a school of thought that kids should be left to their own devices and parents have no place helicoptering over their every move. Faced with the absurd competitiveness surrounding his son’s youth league baseball team, Max decides to get to know the colorful parents and coaches of the team better in an attempt to find the inspiration for his next movie.
