The Zephyrs, Hank's softball team, win the league championship with an undefeated season. As a result, Hank is invited to give a motivational speech at the local high school, where he learns that the school's baseball team has been cut due to budget problems. Peggy suggests inviting the Ace of Diamonds and His Jewels, a Harlem Globetrotters-style barnstorming team, to Arlen, to raise money for the baseball team. Ace's team is known for playing in a comedic style, with Ace pitching blindfolded or from the outfield, always winning, and donating the winning team's share of the gate to charity. Hank convinces the Zephyrs that they can be the first team to defeat the Jewels. But when the game starts, Ace is unhappy to find that the Zephyrs are playing seriously to win. Written by
