This is the true story of Monty Stratton, a Major League Baseball pitcher who pitched for the Chicago White Sox from 1934-1938, who was on the way to Fame and Fortune when Fate stepped in. It's the drama of his come-back, a wonderful story of romance and courage, packed with fun and thrills. It's also the story of that girl he met on a blind date!

James Stewart plays the part of Stratton, who in the off-season of 1938 accidentally shoots himself in his right leg while on a hunting excursion. When his leg has to be amputated, it looks as though his pitching career is over. Nevertheless, with a wooden leg and his wife Ethel's (June Allyson) support, Stratton is able to make a successful minor league comeback in 1946.
