Filmed during the off-season in Los Angeles' Wrigley Field, the top sluggers of the day are pitted against each other in 9-inning home run contests. Viewers are treated to Mickey Mantle, Willie Mays, Duke Snider, Hank Aaron, Harmon Killebrew, Ernie Banks, Al Kaline, Bob Allison, Wally Post, Jim Lemon, Gil Hodges, Rocky Colavito and others showing their stuff for prize money.
