A young woman reporter blames the Pittsburgh Pirates' losing streak on the obscenely abusive manager. While she attempts to learn more about him for her column, he begins hearing the voice of an angel promising him help for the team if he will mend his ways. As he does so, an orphan girl who is a Pirates fan and has been praying for the team begins noticing angels on the ballfield. Sure enough, the Pirates start winning, and McGovern tries to turn his life around. But can he keep his temper long enough for the Pirates to win the NL pennant? Written by
When the sign is changed from a bunt to hit-away, the batter singles to left field with a runner on second base. The pitcher incorrectly runs toward third base instead of home plate to back up the catcher on a play to home plate. See more »
The Pittsburgh Pirates are a team in disarray and just keep on losing.
Could the reason be the manager Guffy McGovern played by Paul Douglas as the
reporter Jennifer Paige and the players believe. Guffy has a foul mouth
whenever he gets angry which is most of the time. Unbeknown to Guffy and
the Pirates is a little orphan girl that is praying for them. God hears her
prayers and sends an angel to help but only if Guffy can control his temper
and mouth. Guffy does and the team starts to win. Little Bridget White,
the orphaned girl gets a chance to attend a game and is the only one to see
angels behind the ball players. Can Guffy change his ways and will Bridget
find a home? At the end is a very touching decision by Guffy concerning his
old bitter friend, a washed-up pitcher that started the game as to whether
to stay with him in the ninth or to replace him. Excellent film for those
that believe in the power of prayer.
