Reginald loves to create beautiful music on his violin. But Papa,
manager of the Dukes, the worst team in the Negro National League,
needs a bat boy, not a "fiddler", and traveling with the Dukes
doesn''t leave Reginald much time for practicing.
Soon the Dukes'' dugout is filled with Beethoven, Mozart, and
Bach -- and the bleachers are filled with the sound of the Dukes''
bats. Has Reginald''s violin changed the Dukes'' luck -- and can
his music pull off a miracle victory against the powerful
Gavin Curtis''s beautifully told story of family ties and team
spirit and E. B Lewis''s lush watercolor paintings capture a very
special period in history.
