There is only one thing Felix wants more than to become a professional baseball player. That is for his father to join him and his mother in Florida and be able to join a major league baseball team himself. Felix and his mother fled Cuba when Felix was a baby. His father, a Cuban baseball star, gave up his place on the boat so that Felix could be free. That is all Felix's mother has told him. Felix would give anything for his father to see him play. His mother works constantly and Felix feels she doesn't support his baseball dreams. One day, Felix sneaks into a baseball team's locker room and is mistaken for their batboy. What a chance! Felix stows away on their bus to live his dream, if only for one day. Will his mother ever forgive him? The drama is intense as Felix is in for surprises, not always pleasant, about his father, his mother, and himself.
