Baseball.  That's all Fran can think about.  That's all she wants to think about.  Since her mother died last year and Dad has his breakdown, baseball was the only thing that mattered to Fran.  She dreamed of being the first woman professional baseball player.  And she was good.  But this year, she was on a team that didn't want her.  The boys were constantly harassing her. And the coach might even hate her.  Nothing was going as planned.  But still, Fran had her dream.  Until the day at practice when everything changed.
