The American Stage Co. and the Hudson Guild Theatre both had hits with this romantic comedy. Mertle Mae Tucker supports herself, her dad, a canary and a blind cat working as a truck dispatcher. Dad was once a Yankee he spent the 1955 season on the bench and then retired rather than be traded to Cleveland. He lives in a demented twilight zone, walking around in his uniform and talking to the audience as he would to Casey Stengel. When Mertle Mae takes a night school class, she meets and falls in love with a successful young executive. He loves Mertle Mae but is not so sure about taking on dear old dad. He finds an old folks home in Cleveland, but Mertle Mae can't bring herself to put him there even though she knows Frank is her big chance in life. Dad, more aware than the lovers realize, informs Casey that he will allow himself to be traded to Cleveland after all.
