T.J., his younger brother, Moondance, and Mop -- Miss Olivia Parrish -- grew up together in the same orphanage. Now T.J. and Moondance have been adopted, and Mop has to find a family before the orphanage closes and "leftover" kids are sent away. Mop hopes that if she can play catcher on the Elks, the coach might adopt her. T.J.'s problem with the Elks is that little Moondance is a better ball player than he is.
What will T.J.'s adopted father think -- he can't hit, throw, or catch a ball? Will T.J. and Mop's greatest wishes come true? It's going to take a lot of teamwork!
