Stan Ross was a great Major League hitter, and also a major league jerk. Upon reaching his 3000th hit and securing his place in the Hall of Fame, Stan retires, leaving his team in a lurch just before the playoffs. 9 years later when Stan is on the verge of sports immortality, a statistical error reveals that Stan, "Mr. 3000", is really Stan, "Mr. 2997". Now, at nearly 50 years old, and 3 hits shy of hitting his goal, Stan decides to make a comeback. The owners of his old team welcome him back, so how hard could it be to get 3 more hits?
Special features: deleted scenes with director commentary; outtakes; extended scenes, including SportsCenter and The Tonight Show featurette; "Spring training: the extras journey" featurette; "Everybody loves Stan" featurette; "Making of Mr. 3000" featurette; director audio commentary.
