From the Paper:

"Can the Cleveland Indians rise from their tradition of mediocrity, learn to play strong professional baseball, attract crowds to see the winning team and bring honor to themselves and to the city of Cleveland? This is the loaded question that the movie Major League seeks to answer, and it answers enthusiastically in the affirmative.

In the movie, the hapless Indians are inherited by an ex-show girl from her late husband. She wants to move the team to Miami and, in order to get out of the stadium lease, needs for attendance to drop below 800,000. As a result, the widow puts together a ragtag team of over-the-hill players, a pitcher who has a rapid fastball but no control, and a team which is overall comprised of movie stereotypes, with the result that the prospect of assembling a winning team seems next to impossible."
