Set in the turbulent 1950's, while Jackie Robinson is shattering racial barriers in the National Baseball League, Benny Turner, a teenager is growing up in the ever-changing nation's capital, Washington, DC. Despite his thin frame, Benny has extraordinary natural talent that can take him to the national stage. Without a relationship with his biological mother or father, he excels as one of the city's recognized high school baseball pitchers. Perseverance, persistence and unconditional love of other male family members creates a level playing field for Benny to suit up and play the first innings of the ultimate game --life
