Even though she is a young widow with three children, a dilapidated Victorian house in constant need of repair, and no steady job, Becky Wexham has always had a knack for stretching a dollar. And, when the need arises, she is more than willing to take in her newly orphaned nine-year-old nephew, Davey.
Since Davey is happiest when playing baseball, Becky does everything she can to help him through Little League tryouts – even though a past flame Tim Yeagher, is the coach. Things get complicated when Tim tries to get Becky back, vowing not to let her slip through his fingers as she did before.
Meanwhile, Davey prays every night to his idol, Babe Ruth, to help him improve his game and his Aunt Becky’s love life. To the young boy’s surprise, the Babe comes through. Together, Davey and Becky learn a few things about baseball, love, and life; Just keep swinging, even when the strikes and fouls seem insurmountable. Keep giving it your all – keep believing – and anything’s possible.
