Peter gets in trouble at work when he accidentally injures the ringer his boss has hired for the company softball tournament. All seems lost until some new neighbors move in next door, and Peter sees that Joe, the husband, is a former softball champion. Peter invites him to come play, not noticing that Joe is in a wheelchair. Joe wins the game, however, and becomes the local hero. Peter starts feeling jealous of all the attention Joe gets, and plots a way to take back the spotlight.
