Wally Morris is a good right fielder, but Coach Hutter is trying to make him a pitcher. Wally is a lefty and has a strong arm and good aim. What he doesn't have is the desire to play the position. But how can he refuse? Coach Hutter once saved his life, and Wally feels he owes him. Then he meets Cab Lacey, a former ballplayer whose life story bears some resemblances to his own. Will Cab help Wally see that being true to oneself is sometimes more important than fulfilling another's dreams?
