An aging Atlanta Braves baseball scout, Gus Lobel, is given one last assignment to engage with scouting and prove his value to the organization, who views him as unable to adapt to changes within the game, especially advanced statistical analysis. His boss and friend Pete does not want to see him let go, but he must contend with an ambitious junior executive, Phillip Sanderson, who is trying to get a promotion to the team’s general manager post and wants Gus fired as an obstacle to his own baseball philosophy and methods.

Pete suspects Gus is hiding problems with his health, so against Gus’s wishes, Pete contacts Gus’s daughter Mickey, a workaholic lawyer pursuing a partnership at her firm, to join her father on a scouting trip to North Carolina. Gus is to review a top prospect named Bo Gentry, a brash amateur whose gaudy statistics make him a likely top draft pick. Mickey realizes that Gus’s vision is failing and starts to take an active role in his work to make up for his shortcoming. Along the way, Gus reconnects with a former player he once scouted, Johnny “The Flame” Flanagan, who is now a scout for the Boston Red Sox, and who takes an interest in Mickey.
