In this better than average baseball film, Frank Maguire (Lloyd Nolan), a former player haunted by the memory of an error he made in an important game, is given a second chance in the big leagues, this time as a manager. Taking the helm of the Brooklyn Dodgers, he has to overcome both
clubhouse dissension and the apathy of new owners when the team's longtime matriarch (Sara Allgood) dies. Even after the players petition to have him removed as the skipper, Frank rises to the challenge and leads them in an exciting pennant drive, falling in love with one of the new owners (Carole
Landis) in the process.
