Old Joe Boyd would give anything to see his beloved Washington Senators defeat those "damn Yankees," up to and including selling his soul to the devil, which he does. The devil makes him into young Joe Hardy, a baseball phenom who single-handedly brings the Senators to the penant. Unfortunately, Joe misses his wife Meg and must decide between being young and famous forever, or being old and married to his true love.
