Events lead to Joe having to fly Ty and his former coach to the final game of the year, but the airport is socked in and the tower gives Joe the option to abort which he does. Helen, who is smitten with Ty, acuses Joe of denying the record, but AeroMass (Roy`s airline) flys Ty in time to not only get the record, but win the game with late inning heroics.
