Everyone's Hero is an animated comedy film that follows the story of a boy trying to clear his father's name. Yankee Irving (Jake T. Austin) is a young baseball fan whose father, Stanley (Mandy Patinkin), works as a janitor at Yankee Stadium. One day, Yankee and Stanley are at the stadium when Babe Ruth's bat, Darlin'(Whoopi Goldberg), is stolen. Stanley is accused of the theft, causing him to get fired. However, the real thief is Chicago Cubs pitcher, Left Maginnis (William H. Macy). He steals the bat with the hopes that taking away Babe's bat will cause the Yankees to lose to Cubs in the World Series. Yankee is able to steal Darlin' back from Lefty and he sets out on a journey to personally return the bat back to Babe. However, Lefty is not willing to let Yankee get away with stealing Darlin' from him, so he sets out on a mission to retrieve it.
