Walter Harvey:
You kind of let me down on that San Antonio job.
Jimmy Dugan:
I, uh, yeh, I, uh... I freely admit, sir, I had no right to... sell off the team's equipment like that; that won't happen again.
Walter Harvey:
Let me be blunt. Are you still a fall-down drunk?
Jimmy Dugan:
Well, that is blunt. Ahem. No sir, I've, uh, quit drinking.
Walter Harvey:
You've seen the error of your ways.
Jimmy Dugan:
No, I just can't afford it.
[giggles]

Walter Harvey:
It's funny to you. Your drinking is funny. You're a young man, Jimmy: you still could be playing, if you just would've laid off the booze.
Jimmy Dugan:
Well, it's not exactly like that... I hurt my knee.
Walter Harvey:
You fell out of a hotel. That's how you hurt it.
Jimmy Dugan:
Well, there was a fire.
Walter Harvey:
Which you started, which I had to pay for.
Jimmy Dugan:
Well, now, I was going to send you a thank-you card, Mr. Harvey, but I wasn't allowed anything sharp to write with.

...I guarantee I'll do a better job
than last time.
You kind of let me down
on that San Antonio job.
Yeah, yeah. I had no right to sell off
the team's equipment like that.
- That won't happen again.
- Let me be blunt.
Are you still a fall-down drunk?
Well, that is blunt.
No, sir. I've quit drinking.
You've seen the error of your ways?
No, I just can't afford it.
That's funny to you?
Your drinking is funny?
You're a young man, Jimmy.
You still could be playing...
...if you just would've laid off
the booze.
Well, it's not exactly like that.
I hurt my knee.
You fell out of a hotel.
That's how you hurt it!
There was a fire.
Which you started,
which I had to pay for.
I was gonna send you...
...a thank-you card, but I wasn't
allowed anything sharp to write with.
Look, Jimmy, I want you to manage
one of the new girls' baseball teams.
Don't look so stunned. Face it.
You're still a name. You step
out of the dugout before every game.
You wave your little hat.
You give the people a thrill.
Why not get an organ grinder?
I can hop around and dance.
If your knees are up to it,
go ahead.
Mr. Harvey...
...I hit 487 home runs
for your baseball club.
Three in the World Series,
two in Game 4 alone.
I know that.
That's why I'm giving you this job.
Take it or leave it.
I gotta feed the fish.
Ladies and gentlemen,
welcome to the first game...
...of the All-American
Girls' Baseball League.
The South Bend Blue Sox
against your own Rockford Peaches.
- Where is he? It's game time.
- I can't believe he's our manager.
I was listening to the radio when he hit
that home run to win the pennant.
Oh, yes.
I'll get him to sign
my husband's baseball card.
