When a boy inherits ownership of the Minnesota Twins, he assigns himself the job of manager and gives the team (and baseball) a new look.
Comedy about young Billy Heywood, who inherits the failing Minnesota Twins from his late grandfather. Billy names himself manager, to the dismay of the jaded ballplayers. The team eventually accepts Billy (and starts winning games), encouraged by his advice to treat baseball as a game, not as a job.
