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 Monarchs?
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.
