Scott Bakula and Leon star in this mystery thriller. An African-American baseball player is having a hot season and threatens to break Joe DiMaggio's batting record. However, one baseball fan isn't so thrilled -- a psychotic racist who has been murdering young black boys and sending their severed thumbs to the slugger, warning him not to break the record of "Joltin' Joe." Soon the FBI and the NYPD are both on the case, trying to catch the psycho before another child is killed (and so the player can finish the season).
