Playful rhymes bring the story of a travelling magical baseball cap to life in these creative perspectives on ball fields, young players, animal friends, and famous historical sites. Experiencing remarkable success on the baseball diamond when donning the cap - from great hitting to fabulous defence - children from across the country learn that their performance has less to do with the magic of the cap than it does with their developing self-confidence. Weaving together a variety of educational themes, the story also includes a series of memory-evoking questions and light discussion activities that can be used by parents and teachers to extend the message of the importance of building positive self-esteem through sport.
