“Take Me Out to the Ball Game” is a musical set in the vibrant vaudeville era, where the Wolves baseball team is surprised by their new owner, the sharp and capable K.C. Higgins. Players Eddie O’Brien and Dennis Ryan, both part-time vaudevillians, find themselves in a tangle. Dennis is smitten by K.C., while Eddie’s feelings are tested by fan Shirley Delwyn’s attention.

Their personal dramas intensify when they’re in the crosshairs of Joe Lorgan and his gangsters, who scheme to fix the games for a big bet. Drawing from actor/ballplayer Mike Donlin’s life, the movie seamlessly blends romance, baseball, and onstage excitement.
