The fall of her eighth grade year, Molly's father dies in a car accident. Molly was always a daddy's girl, and now that it's just her and her mom, things are difficult. One of the loves that Molly and her dad shared was baseball. So kind of in his honor, and also because she just isn't a fan of softball, Molly decides to go out for the boy's baseball team that spring. Her dad taught her how to throw a knuckleball when she was little, and that becomes her secret weapon. Some of the boys aren't so thrilled to have a girl on the team - especially a girl who can hold her own - but Molly is determined to stick it out. A good sports story.
