Damn Yankees – July 15-25 Rated G
1950’s Washington, D.C., Joe Boyd, a rabid fan of the woebegone Washington Senators baseball team, says he will sell his soul to the devil to see his team beat the New York Yankees. Soon Mr. Applegate (Devil) shows up to give him his wish, and send a revitalized and renamed Joe Hardy to play on the Senators. But Joe discovers that the love of his wife he left behind is more important to him than seeing his team win the pennant. Not even Lola, Applegate’s best temptress, can deter Joe from returning home, prompting Applegate to start rumors that Joe’s really a banned Mexican League player. Lola, impressed with Joe’s love for his wife, works against her boss, and good triumphs over evil by curtain’s fall.
