It would take a miracle for the Pittsburgh Pirates to win the pennant, but when a young fan (Donna Corcoran) prays for some divine intervention, the club’s fortunes suddenly turn around. Could it really be heavenly help that’s propelling the team’s winning streak? And could it really be the voice of Archangel Gabriel that gruff, foul-mouthed manager Guffy McGovern (Paul Douglas) is hearing? The delightful original version of this winning sports fantasy remains one of the best-loved baseball classics of all time.
