In “Major League,” the new owner of the Cleveland Indians hatches a scheme: assemble the worst possible team, ensuring dismal attendance and paving the way to relocate the team for profit. With a lineup of underdogs like speedster Willie Mays Hayes, wild pitcher Ricky Vaughn, and past-his-prime catcher Jake Taylor, the future looks bleak.

However, when the team uncovers her plot, they’re galvanized into action. The ragtag group, which also includes the superstitious slugger Pedro Cerrano and no-nonsense manager Lou Brown, bands together. Driven by defiance and an underdog spirit, they set out to win against all odds, turning the tables on their conniving owner.
