Reginald loves to create beautiful music on his violin. 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 Duke's 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 beautiuflly told story of family ties and team spirit and E.B Lewis's lush watercolor paintings capture a very special period in history.
