Life's Greatest Game
Cast & Crew
Chicago Cubs pitcher Jack Donovan refuses to throw a game for the benefit of gambler Mike Moran, and the latter gets his revenge by breaking up Donovan's home. Believing his wife and son to be dead in an ocean liner tragedy, Jack goes on in baseball and, 20 years later, is manager of the New York Giants. Jackie, Jr., leaves college, joins the Giants against his mother's wishes, and, recognizing his father, resolves to get even by deliberately losing a World Series game. His sportsmanship comes through, however, and he wins the deciding game against the Yankees and reunites his father with his ailing mother.
The cast includes also some 600 spectators in 1906 costume, a group of clever child actors, and other minor characters.
