This story is for and about kids who once played or still play baseball for the love of the game, without coaches and concession stands and with little worn-out equipment. It is reminiscent of simpler times when kids met at a neighborhood field or an empty lot and just started playing. It is also about generosity and kindness as children see the playing the game forward concept in action. This book is part of a much larger movement to raise awareness, funds, and equipment for children who would otherwise go without.
