A kid named Scott Smalls moves into town. He's not cool but he's a little of a nerd. Another kid named Benny Rodriguez offers Smalls toplay baseball with the other kids(After the kids saw that Smalls couldn't catch or throw). Benny does not give up hope for Smalls and teaches him how to do baseball stuff. They do funny stuff. If they lose a ball, they can't get it because a dog called "The Beast" is a monster dog that lives over the fence. Smalls snatches his stepfather's autographed ball with Babe Ruth. He hits it over the fence and needs to get it back before his stepfather gets back from a buisiness trip!
