Set during the 1950s in Washington, D.C. during a time when the New York Yankees dominated Major League Baseball, middle-aged real estate agent Joe Boyd is a long-suffering fan of the pathetic Washington Senators baseball team. Joe sells his soul to the devil, Mr. Applegate, for “one good long ball hitter” for his team. Mr. Applegate grants his wish, turning Joe into a 22 year-old sports superstar who must go back to his wife before 9 pm on the final game day if he doesn’t want Mr. Applegate to get his soul. How could you not love a baseball show?
