Life’s Greatest Game is a movie where Chicago Cubs pitcher Jack Donovan refuses to throw a game for the benefit of a gambler, who then destroys his home. Also believing his wife and son to be dead in an ocean liner tragedy, Jack plays pro baseball and, 20 years later, is manager of the New York Giants. Meanwhile, Jackie, Jr., joins the Giants, recognizing his father, and deliberately loses a World Series game. His sportsmanship comes through, however, and he wins the deciding game against the Yankees and reunites his father.
