you have something you just love to do? Maybe it's playing a sport.
Maybe playing computer games. Maybe just hanging with your friends.
Something that makes you happy. Well, Reginald loves to play the
violin. He'd play all the time if he could. The only problem
is his dad wants him to do something else. You see, his dad manages
a baseball team. It's the worse team in the Negro National League.
Reginald's dad can't understand why Reginald isn't interested in baseball.
To get him more involved, Reginald is made the bat boy for the team.
Now, Reginald isn't much of a batboy. He can't even carry the equipment
without dropping it. What lessons will Reginald and his dad learn
while traveling around with the worst team in the league?
