Felix is a big baseball fan who lives in Florida with his mom. He is most interested in Cuban baseball players, because the one thing he knows about his father is that he was a Cuban baseball star. One night, Felix wins tickets to a game, but he has to go with his babysitter, whom he dislikes. When Felix is mistaken for a new batboy, he goes along with the team in hopes that he might learn more about his father.
In Oregon after World War II, twenty one sixth grade girls look forward to a big baseball game. Each girl tells her little piece of the story. All of the stories together add up to show how different families were prejudiced against one another after the war.
