Bat Shugrue (Rockcliffe Fellows) is a star home-run slugger for the Pacific Coast League's Los Angeles Angels. He was formerly known by the criminal justice system as the "gas pipe kid" and served time in San Quinten. Released on parole, he escapes from his hearing at night court and within five years becomes a star ballplayer. His girlfriend Ida Malone (Fritzi Ridgeway) is treated coolly by Bat when he is paroled. After hitting the winning pinch-hit homer to win a crucial game, he turns himself in and faces the judge. Ida's kid brother Jimmy (Buddy Messinger) and a legion of fans wait for judgment to be passed on their home-run hero in this sports drama.
