Disney is snatching up original pitches, and this latest one is a guaranteed homerun and/or strikeout. It comes from Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps scribe Allan Loeb with Bradley Cooper attached to star. THR has the stats:
The dramedy centers on a baseball player who gets injured and has to go back to the minors where the only place he can find lodging is in a senior citizens’ home. There, he meets an old baseball guru who helps lead him back.
Does the film take place in a futuristic world where studio apartments with a partial view don’t exist? Or does the stench of deat drive the character’s desire to succeed?

Ah sh*t, that’s the wrong kind of fowl. I really fouled that one up. **Removes jock strap from head and cap from groin**
