The Winning Team Brief Information

The Winning Team is 1952 film directed by Lewis Seiler. It is a fictionalized biography of the life of major league pitcher Grover Cleveland Alexander (1887"1950) starring Ronald Reagan as Alexander, Doris Day as his wife, Aimee and Frank Lovejoy as baseball star Rogers Hornsby.

The story covers Alexander's life as telephone company lineman and amateur ballplayer, pitcher for the Philadelphia Phillies and Chicago Cubs, his battles with alcoholism and epilepsy, and finally his comeback with the St. Louis Cardinals. It includes his heroic performance in three games in the 1926 World Series against the New York Yankees, where the 7th inning strikeout of Tony Lazzeri is used as the game-ending, Series-winning pitch.
