Summer is around the corner, and Little League first baseman, Billy Kramer, is looking forward to playing another year with the LA Southgate Sharks. His plans are uprooted when his mother announces an unexpected move to rural Bennington, Nebraska. Billy's world is turned upside down.
Billy hoped to find a new team that could compete at the same level as his former team. He soon finds that Bennington's local team, the Bunz Town Badgers, is composed of below-average players who haven't won a game in two years.
Recognizing Billy's talent, the coach sends him to the Omaha Outlaws, believing he should be with players matching his skill level.
Billy quickly realizes he must make a choice: playing for a polished team with questionable motives or playing with a team of friends who love the sport.
Will this star athlete have what it takes to make some tough decisions?
