Joelle Cunningham has moved mid-year from Minnesota to Iowa. She’s always
played baseball. Unfortunately in Greendale, Iowa girls must play softball
as the alternative to baseball. After trying to play on the boy’s team
and approaching the school board and superintendent Joelle realizes the
frustration. She attempts to start a girls’ baseball league. With community
support and a change of attitude, Joelle’s dream comes true. (Jean
