Frank Maguire (Lloyd Nolan) is an ace ballplayer who was disgraced while still in college and is only able to secure work as a team manager. He takes charge of an unnamed Brooklyn team and whips it into a World Series contender. The players resent Maguire's drill-sergeant tactics, and when Maguire falls in love with the pretty owner of the team Kathryn Baker (Carole Landis), the players use this as an excuse to circulate a petition demanding Maguire's ouster. The manager pays no attention to the petition and leads his team to a league pennant.
