In real life, Henry is clumsy, nearsighted, and slow to react - not exactly a star athlete. But in Henry's games of make-believe baseball, he's always a winner, no matter what. Henry has played real ball, and he doesn't like it very much. Somehow, no matter how hard he tries, he ends up losing the game for his team. Imaginary games are much better: He can play any position he wants, and he can also impersonate both teams, the coaches, and even the crowd. Then one night Henry finds himself in the middle of a dangerous situation. And as a result of the attention that follows, Henry is drawn back into the world of real baseball - and is given another chance to be a real sports hero
