1917
~Plot Synopsis~
~New Savey--"The Pinch Hitter~

A corking baseball play" is the way a baseball expert describes "The Pinch Hitter," a two day run at the
New Savey to-day, and starring Charles Ray. But the baseball game is not the only exciting situation in
this comedy hit. It sparkles with humorous episodes, which the author, C. Gardner Sullivan, has drawn
from actual happenings of college life. "This picture is one that every red-blooded American will enjoy,"
said John K. Teuer, president of the National League of Professional Baseball Clubs, who witnessed "The
Pinch Hitter" at a private showing. "It is fascinating because of its human force, the naturalness  of its
character in situation and its perfection of baseball technique.

Sylvia Bremer, an Australian beauty, makes her debut o the screen as leading woman for Charles Ray.
The role offers rare opportunities for comedy expression and character development and is, therefore,
particularly adapted to Ray.
