It is 1951 and nine year old Maggie believes she is the biggest Dodgers fan on the block.  Sure, just about everyone around is but Maggie lives for the Dodgers.  The team is not what you would call a winning team but that could change any time now.  Maggie's dad used to be a firefighter at the local station before he got hurt.  Even if he isn't at the fire station anymore, Maggie still hangs out with the guys and listens to the games on the radio.  When the new fireman joins the crew, Maggie can't believe it -- a Giant's fan!!  Jim will just never fit it.  Or will he?
