As a doormat baseball team struggles through its season, peanut vendor/washed-up big leaguer Dan Dailey starts feeding tips to the dugout through bat boy son Billy Chapin. Pretty soon, the team's fortunes turn around...but can the surreptitious arrangement last when the owner installs the kid as manager? Anne Bancroft, Lloyd Bridges, Ray Collins, Richard Egan co-star. 80 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono.
