Charlie Brown comes back to playing baseball after taking a break with his sore arm. He asks Linus to go long, because the batter hits far. Linus catches the ball in an apple tree and throws an apple back to Charlie Brown. Schroeder asks Charlie Brown how his arm is doing. He says it's fine. Lucy says that arms aren't made for pitching, they're made for hugging. Lucy goes out to the mound to ask Charlie Brown what pitch he's using. When she finds out it's a curve ball, she yells it back to Frieda. Lucy decides to try her hand at pitching. When Schroeder comes to the mound to discuss signals, she flirts with him. He then complains to Charlie Brown that mound conferences always end with a kiss on the nose. Lucy asks Schroeder why he doesn't like her. Charlie Brown pitches a ball and it is hit. When Frieda and Lucy go to grab it, they can't because there's a spider on it. Finally, Charlie Brown reflects on how good it is to be back on the mound. It's just like the old days. Unfortunately.
