The year is 1899, and the Travelin’ Nine are barnstorming their way across the good ol’ U.S. of A., trying to raise money to pay off the Payne family’s big-league debt.
After jumping off the train to retrieve the baseball, Woody and Griffith find themselves stranded. When they come across a familiar face, they get back on track and Griffith learns just how magical their baseball is.
With the Rough Riders down a player, Graham finally gets his chance to play with them and show what he is made of. But he better be careful. There is no telling what the Chancellor is willing to sacrifice in order to use Graham’s abilities to his own evil ends.
And Ruby is still concerned that there is a mole in their midst and is more determined than ever to find out who is betraying them. With the opportunity to raise the most money yet at the game in New Orleans, they can’t afford to let anything get back to the Chancellor.
All this and there is still a game to play. Things are about to get rough in the Big Easy!
