Everyone's Hero

Synopsis: A young boy named Yankee Irving finds himself at an extraordinary crossroads: He has a chance to be a hero - and make a difference against incredible odds - or he can play it safe. With faith in himself instilled by his family, he teams up with a sassy young girl and some off-the-wall sidekicks and embarks on a sometimes perilous, often funny, cross-country quest. In the process, he restores his family's honor, befriends the world's biggest sports superstar, and reveals the hero within.

Play ball!

I got it! I got it!

Here we go!

Strike!

Oh, come on.

Why do I always get stuck with the loser?

He stinks.

Darn it!

Too bad.

Hustle! Hustle!

Yankee Irving again!

Tough luck.

Why do we always end up

with Yankee?

Excuse me.

I got it!

Whoa!

You show them, Warbuckles!

Way to run it out!

- Go, go, go, go!

- Run, Philly, you can do it!

Come on, Freckles!

Keep the ride going, buddy!

Next batter!

- Me?

Oh, man!

Tough luck!

Irving, here's your big shot.

This is just like Game Seven

of the '26 Series. Babe came to the...

Yeah, yeah.

Listen, you're not Babe Ruth, okay?

Now look, you've got no strike zone,

so he's guaranteed to walk you.

Batter up!

- Just don't swing.

- He's gonna whiff. Bring it in.

- Easy out, easy out.

- Let him walk you.

- Don't swing at it, Irving!

Yeah, don't swing!

If I don't swing,

how are you gonna know I can hit?

Don't swing, Irving!

Hey, batter, batter, batter,

hey, batter, batter, swing!

Strike one!

- What did I just tell you?

Come on.

- You've got no strike zone!

Strike two!

- Just take the pitch!

Don't swing!

Don't swing, Irving!

Don't swing at it, Irving!

Now batting, number one,

Yankee Irving!

Ah!

Nice job, whiff.

That's it.

You're never playing on my team again.

Give it up.

Go home.

Yeah, don't come back.

Come on, let's get out of here.

Loser.

Honey! Dinnertime!

Huh?

Hmm.

Hmm.

Guess nobody wants you

in the game either.

Hey, Irving, you stink!

The Movietone News:

Bringing you the news

just days after it's happened.

In sporting news, the Yankees continue

their splendiferous winning streak.

It's Game Three of the World Series.

Bottom of the ninth,

the Yankees down by three,

bases loaded,

Babe Ruth steps up to the plate.

Will the Sultan of Swat save the day?

You betcha!

So what's Napoleon Cross,

owner of the Chicago Cubs,

going to do now?

With his best bat, Darlin', in his hands,

Babe Ruth is unstoppable.

Babe Ruth. Babe Ruth.

Babe Ruth and his best bat, Darlin'.

He's everywhere!

Every newsreel, every newspaper

talks about Babe Ruth.

Look at all this stuff! Babe Ruth sippy cup,

Babe Ruth silver dollars,

Babe Ruth underpants,

obviously for the larger child.

What's he got that I haven't got?

He's got a World Series trophy!

And I want one!

- Is that too much to ask?

- No, not at all.

Why don't you put me back in, Mr. Cross?

I'll help you win that trophy.

I'm working on a new pitch. I call it...

Are you ready?

The booger ball.

No, Lefty,

even with your most outrageous cheating

you're no match for Babe Ruth.

Cheating? Me? Babe Ruth's the cheater.

I bet he's got some lucky

voodoo charm or something.

That's cheating.

You're right, Lefty.

Babe Ruth does have a lucky charm.

What is it, what is it, what is it?

It's his bat.

So what do we do?

I'll tell you what we do.

We take away his bat. Let's do the math.

- Going into the light.

- Babe without bat is nothing.

Without that bat, he's just big and fat!

Put that on a T-shirt.

Yeah, I like it.

It's good stuff, it's good stuff.

Only one problem.

How we gonna get Babe Ruth's lucky bat?

- Not "we," you.

- But, Mr. Cross, I...

Get me that bat. And I think

the only way to get it is to steal it.

Otherwise, you're out!

Hi, honey, how was your day?

- Hey, Mom.

- Is Dad home yet?

- Not yet.

- He's working late.

- Again?

- Dinner will be ready soon.

- Not hungry.

Why do I always get stuck

with the loser?

Yankee Irving again!

He's working late.

That's it.

You're never playing on my team again.

You're not Babe Ruth, okay?

Why do we always get stuck
