Description

Shirley Temple Wong is thrilled to be moving from her home in China to America. But it isn't easy. She doesn't speak English, the kids at school ignore her, and she feels very far from home.

But then summer comes, bringing the miracle of baseball. Suddenly Shirley is playing stickball and following superstar Jacke Robinson as he leads the Brooklyn Dodgers to victory after victory. Jackie Robinson proves that in America, the grandson of a slave can make a difference. And for Shirley as well, on the ball field and off. America becomes the land of opportunity.
