~Headin' Home~
1920
~Plot Synopsis~
Babe, a consummate failure, has only one goal in life - to be a baseball player. Stymied in his
ambition by John Tobin, the owner of the local team, who refuses to allow Babe to play, he signs on
with a rival club and defeats his home team with a homer in the ninth inning. Ostracized for his act
of treachery, Babe journeys to New York, joins the Yankees and returns a hero. Babe enhances his
standing even more when he prevents the team's pitcher, Knight, from embezzling bank funds and
wins the banker's daughter Mildred.
