Ted Warren (Tony Martin) is an egotistical baseball player for the Brooklyn Hooligans. An opera singer who is mad about baseball buys the team and falls in love with red. Ted thinks she is friendly only as long as he keeps hitting home runs. The Hooligan's coach and his wife William Frawley and Vivian Vance play cupid. Mel Allen plays himself, adding an air of credibility during the filmed baseball scenes. Marguerite Piazza is wonderful as a Brooklyn girl who just also happens to be an opera singer. Her two arias from La Boheme and Carmen are wonderful. Yma Sumac appears too, but she doesn't have much to do. Tony martin is all charm and talent. He really makes the production fun. It's also interesting to see William Frawley and Vivian Vance together, although really they're playing the Mertz's with different occupations. The best part is where the opera singers are watching their first baseball game. The ending is weak, but it's worthwhile watching because everyone puts their all into it.
