During the Great Depression, single mother Josephine Morhard decides to focus on a better future for her daughter and son. But Junior is a volatile boy of eight—until his mother comes up with a novel plan to build discipline and self-worth in her son. Out of a dream, an empty lot, and the enthusiasm of other neighborhood kids, Josephine establishes the first boys' baseball league in America. Telling her mother-in-law's remarkable story, Ruth Hanford Morhard reveals how a determined mom triumphed, with a little help from the Cleveland Indians, future baseball legends Bob Feller, Jeff Heath, and Roy Weatherly; and sports reporter Hal Lebovitz.
