They meet cute, as seems essential to any love story. She (Amanda Cross, played by Susan Greenhill), is a native Southerner and a widow visiting her grown daughter in New Jersey, who drops by the home of Gus Klingman (Richard Bourg) on an errand. Gus is a seemingly grumpy widower who’s at first flummoxed by Amanda’s flirtatious ways. But when a rainstorm prevents her from leaving right away, and they discover a mutual interest in baseball….well, soon enough the conversation turns more promising.
