Luis Bosco spent over a decade playing baseball around the world, yet he never pitched in the major leagues. In the near future, as players succeed because of a synthetic elbow ligament, he blames the procedure for his failures. Although few fans and officials challenge the fairness of surgical augmentations, Luis still upholds his integrity and honesty. But when his pitching stint in South Korea tangles him in the middle of a murder, Luis retires.
