Thirteen-year-old 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.
