Nine-year-old Kristie "Cricket" Adams doesn't believe the stereotype that girls are supposed to play house, carry dolls, wear pretty dresses, and not get dirty. She'd rather play baseball.

A talented pitcher, first baseman, and hitter, Cricket loves to play the game. After participating in her town's Minor Little League program for two years, she dreams of being selected for one of the upper-level teams.
Cricket works hard and prepares for tryouts, but she's disappointed when she's not chosen because she is a girl.

Cricket refuses to give up. She's asked to return to her Minor Little
League team to play another year. Somewhat discouraged over the outcome, she agrees and is determined to be a good baseball player,
teammate, and friend. With tenacity and motivation, Cricket proves that dreams really do come true.

Filled with the sounds and sights of America's favorite pastime, both boys and girls who love baseball will want to read about Cricket's journey to beat the odds and come out a winner!
