The Worcester Quahogs are a mediocre minor league team owned by Bud Templeton and managed by his son Trey, who is made Executive Vice President by his father in order to give the feckless young man a job.  Trey uses the experience as fodder for a book about baseball that he hopes will win him literary fame.  He is distracted from this dream by Nae Ann Embree, a cheerleader for the team who becomes the focus of a love quadrangle among Trey, Chip Hilton, a white first base prospect, and Delfayo Newbill, a black slugger sent down from the parent club due to his hair-trigger temper.  The romantic catch-and-release that follows combines two of America’s most beloved native products; baseball and screwball comedy. CannaCorn is set in Worcester, Mass. in the early years of the twenty-first century.
