"Speedy" loses his job as a soda-jerk, then spends the day with his girl at Coney Island. He then becomes a cab driver and delivers Babe Ruth to Yankee Stadium, where he stays to see the game. When the railroad tries to run the last horse-drawn trolley (operated by his girl's grandfather) out of business, "Speedy" organizes the neighborhood oldtimers to thwart their scheme. Written by

When Speedy picks Babe Ruth up at the curb in front of the orphanage, there are street car tracks in the street and a street car waiting behind the cab. When the cab pulls away from the curb, there are no tracks. The street is not in Manhattan as a row of telephone poles is seen on the far side of the street, and there have been no overhead wires in Manhattan since the Blizzard of 1888 caused several fatalities resulting from falling power lines.
