Synopsis

Hutch Lawton has recently moved from New York to Florida with his widower father, who runs a charter fishing boat. When Hutch boasts to his Little League teammates that Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris are his father's friends, his lie snowballs and he is forced into promising that he will deliver the two Yankee stars to a Little League banquet. While his father is away on a three-day fishing trip, Hutch hitchhikes a ride to the Yankee spring training camp at Fort Lauderdale. Although he meets Mantle and Maris, the two men refuse to be a party to his deceit. Heartbroken, Hutch returns home to tell the truth to the Little Leaguers and their fathers. Just as he finishes his confession, however, word arrives that Mantle and Maris have invited the Little Leaguers to join them for spring training.
