Burke O Roberts is desperate to leave the St. Michael’s Orphanage in Hopewell, New Jersey.  Burke copes with the trials of orphanage life including avoiding the unwanted attentions of The Supervisor, while building a baseball team that can contend for the championship of the Cook AA Little League in Trenton.  When a seminarian arrives from Baltimore to coach the team, dynamics are set in motion that drive the book to its explosive conclusion as the team’s star pitcher receives a Milwaukee Braves uniform from an unknown donor.  When he won’t play without it, his defiance crystalizes Burke’s determination to escape his own confinement.
