Cartoon Summary:

It's the Redskins vs. the Bluesocks! The Redskins are about to lose the baseball pennant. The team's manager is put on the spot by his George Steinbrenner-like boss, and, desperate for a fresh idea, accepts the advice of his "scout" (against the manager's will) to draft a horse named Rube Clodhopper to play in the final game. His scout (get it?) is literally a "redskin"- a broad Native American stereotype who brings a tepee to sleep in even in a posh hotel room, and who employs the traditional "me gettum good player" speech style. In a little satirical jab at the commercial interests of players, a batter gets tagged out at home plate because he stopped at third base to do a shaving ad. There are no rules that say a horse can't play, and with seconds to go to save the pennant, the horse is called up to bat. After two strikes, he knocks a home run. The crowd goes wild, but the horse won't run. He says that he was told to hit the ball, not run... if he could run, he would be in the Kentucky Derby.
