Casey Stengel is courting his future wife Edna, and she finally comes from California to New York to see him play.
In the first inning, Casey lays down a bunt and beats it out with a head first slide into first. He then steals second base with a beautiful hook slide. A couple pitches later, a curve bounces in the dirt, and Stengel takes third on a close play and another slide. Then he scores on a short fly ball, with yet another slide.
As the game progresses, Stengel makes a couple diving catches in the outfield — and his run stands up. They win 1-0.
Stengel showers, dresses, dashes off to meet Edna. He's bursting with pride -- the hero of the game, and his girl got to see it.
But she doesn't seemed impressed, and Casey tries to coax a complement out of her. "Well, what did you think?"
"Oh, I know you won," Edna says, "but why did you keep falling down out there?"
