Newsreel clip begins with views inside and outside the Polo Grounds, the home stadium of baseball's New York Giants. Fans leave through the center field gates at the end of a game. Baseball commissioner Happy Chandler smiles and poses for the camera at his desk. Giants manager Leo Durocher, wearing 1940s-style street clothes, disembarks from a plane with other members of the team. Reporter shouts "Leo!" at him and photographer asks him to wave, to no response. At Polo Grounds, Giant players and coaches walk down the staircase from the center field clubhouse to the field. Durocher says a few words to reporters. Durocher walks across the field and into the Giants' dugout. (Note: Silent except for moment of wild sound when reporter calls out to Durocher)
