Nick was a rising star - people for miles around talked about the 12 year-old boy with the golden arm. When he was diagnosed with Polio, everyone was devastated - including his father who dealt with the news by shutting Nick out. Now Nick is finally out of the hospital and wants nothing more than to reenter the game, but he seems to be the only one who thinks its possible. Until he begins working for Mr. Churchill, the man who owns a minor league team. Satchel Paige, arguably the best player in baseball, not allowed in the major leagues because of the color of his skin, has just joined the team. He is the only one who encourages Nick to overcome the odds to get back to the game they both love.
