Charlie Brown tries to discourage Lucy from playing baseball, but she pays no attention. He gets fed up with her constant mess-ups and decides to do some trading. Peppermint Patty won't take Lucy, however. She asks Charlie Brown if he'll accept 5 players for Snoopy, his best player. He has no choice but to accept, thinking he'll actually win some games. The team is not happy about this, of course. He rips up the contract after some thought and Patty tells him that the players didn't want to play for him anyway. Then, Patty trades Marcie for Lucy, after sending her to different positions on the field and Lucy not getting the hint, with about the same results, then they trade back. The episode ends with a rain storm, and the players head for home.
