Storyline

Like all normal boys, Sonny Jim lives, eats and talks baseball, when it is in season, so no sooner does little Heinie challenge his team to a game the following Saturday, when Sonny and all the other little "Christy Mathewsons" begin practicing drops, out-curves, etc., with feverish energy. Sonny carelessly lets a fast one go through Miss Squibbs' window, arousing that lady's ire, and bringing heavy punishment on his head. He is ordered by Daddy to stay in the house every afternoon that week. Sonny feels pretty badly when Saturday comes around and Daddy does not relent. Sent on an errand by his mother, Sonny sees his team manfully battling with Heine's team and being defeated. He plunges into the game and puts new enthusiasm into his teammates. There Daddy, whose heart had been softened by meeting an old boyhood friend, finds him, and it is his coaching which enables Sonny's team win the game. Daddy proudly tells mother "Sonny is a chip of the old block." Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
