A bank clerk in love with the banker's daughter finds that he has a competitor in the bank cashier, who also wants to marry the girl. The bank clerk, being well known for his ball playing with the home team, is watched by a scout from the Detroit baseball club, and is finally offered a chance in the big league. He accepts and, while away, learns that the cashier is to marry his sweetheart. He starts for home, but is waylaid by a gang of thugs employed by the cashier to detain the ball player. He combats the thugs and arrives home just in time to play in the last game with his home team. He wins not only the game, but his sweetheart as well.
