- Switching Sides
Freddy Fielder wants to re-live the high school glory days he feels he was robbed of by pushing his athletically gifted son, Mikey, into college baseball. When Mikey tells the overly nostalgic, and self-serving, Freddy that he is gay, Freddy’s sensitive side surfaces, and he makes it known that he, too, had a homosexual experience. Even though this unites the two more intimately, Mikey still maintains that he wants to make life choices of his own.
