As irritating as they can be to each other, Reuven and Avi have two strong bonds Ė the solidity of their Jewish family life and their passionate love of baseball. Pitcher, Reuven, has dreamed of a spot on the All-Star team since the end of last season. His happy-go-lucky brother Avi, the team catcher, hasnít even thought that far ahead. Reuven is willing to ignore the advice of his parents and even involve his younger brother in his campaign to win that spot. But both boys soon realize that being part of a team, both in life and in baseball, is tougher than it looks.
