    In the summer of 1949, the eyes of sports fans across the country were focused on The Great American Pastime. It was the heyday of baseball. Freckle-face kids, their parents, and grandparents alike listened to their team's games on the radio, and to them "their" players were above reproach. But this year was exceptionally distinct, as the American League pennant race would resolve itself in a winner-take-all final game between legendary rivals the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees.

    In the spring of 1947, Gracie turned her eye toward things that are fresh and new: a new hat, a new hemline, and a new home. The real estate wrangling of Beverly Hills most brilliantly befuddled wife finds the Burnses bunking with various members of the cast, occupying a janitor's apartment, and even living seperately at the YMCA/YWCA. All's well that ends well...but, until then it's hilarious!
