Jimmy Fleming throws left, bats right and left, and is hoping to become Hudson City s newest pitcher. But while he makes the team, things don t go just the way he d hoped. His teammates aren t too welcoming, and his time on the mound is less than stellar. It doesn t help that his dad is applying more and more pressure on him to be a star pitcher. Before long, Jimmy is wishing he d never come to Hudson City. But Jimmy isn t one to give up, and just when the season hits a low point, Jimmy s pitches and his attitude begin to find their mark."
