The year is 2030 and the world is in chaos, but at least Jim is broadcasting his favorite sport and has the love of his daughter. He then learns baseball is worse off than he thought and his daughter is moving to New York for college.
Baseball is barely holding on so Jim turns to the one person he knows can turn it around, Jules James. However, it's going to take a lot of convincing to get her to leave Morristown to help a sport and man who both turned their backs on her.
Jim and Jules agree to keep their relationship professional, but when they team up to trick the owners into selling the teams to new owners who will let them make the changes they want, their antics remind them of the relationship they used to have.
Jules tries to win Beth's approval of the relationship she and Brockmire are trying to rekindle, but they don't get along until Jules takes Beth under her wing as a drinking buddy. Jim is irate that Jules was a bad influence on his daughter.
As Beth was growing up, Jim told her everything he knew about her deceased birth mother, but she finds out that he lied to her. On the biggest day of Jim's life, Beth is supposed to give a speech to memorialize him but shows up ready to destroy him.
Artificial intelligence threatens to take steps in its pursuit to rule the world and attempts to take over baseball. Jim and Jules must decide if they want to embolden this emerging society ruled by machines or stay with the failing status quo.
