When Portland, Oregon, lost its longtime minor-league affiliate, Bing Russell-who briefly played ball professionally before enjoying a successful Hollywood acting career-bought the territory and formed a single-A team to operate outside the confines of major-league baseball. When they took the field in 1973, the Mavericks-the only independent team in America-started with two strikes against them. What did Deputy Clem from Bonanza know about baseball? Or Portland, for that matter? The only thing uniting his players, recruited at open tryouts, was that no other team wanted them. Skeptics agreed that it could never work. But Bing understood a ballplayer's dreams, and he understood an audience. His quirky, unkempt castoffs won games, and they won fans, shattering minor-league attendance records. Their spirit was contagious, and during their short reign, the Mavericks-a restaurant owner turned manager, left-handed catcher, and blackballed pitcher among them-brought independence back to baseball and embodied what it was all about: the love of the game.

Sam is a professional gambler, complete with the whole package: highs and lows in fortune, an ex-wife with money, and an estranged son, Jack, who lives solid-citizen but tries to rival his father. The rivalry comes to a head when Sam starts living with a much-younger woman nicknamed Princess that he picks up in the desert town of Indio on his way back from a mediocre gambling jaunt in Laughlin, Nevada. At first distrustful of Sam, their relationship grows unexpectedly warm - except that, while she appears to love Sam, Princess also sleeps with Jack. Meanwhile, Sam teaches Princess the skills of the gambling trade: Sam's reputation is that "He always wins when it counts." Their fortunes take a nosedive, though, when Sam makes a wrong calculation on a low-end bet and winds up with both his knees smashed - just after he'd lined-up Insa, a female connection to a dangerous high stakes gambling syndicate...
