With odds against him, ten year old Larry makes one of the four Little League teams in his town, though not as a first string player. His year with baseball is one of learning the ropes of good outfielding, and of becoming a past master at team spirit. This pays off when he turns down a chance to be in a championship game, realizing that the regular centerfield will do a better job than he. Larry is an orphan who lives with his grandmother and has a problem finding out that prestige doesn't count in the long run towards team membership. Reliable Little League fare.
