Meet the Ballplayers — a fearless five with a passion for sports, hanging with friends, and life on Broadway Avenue….
I’m Molly. My friends say I’m like a bull in a china shop when I play sports. But my bruised knees and elbows never hurt when we win.
Penny’s my name. Sometimes people call me Big Time or Sweet P because of my smooth moves…and when we lose, I take all the blame.
I’m Rosie. I don’t really talk much. My coach doesn’t like that I’m the only girl on the baseball team. I can’t wait to strike him out.
Don’t let my friends fool ya. I’m Wil, the best and brightest Ballplayer of this bunch. Now can somebody please tell my coach to put me in the game?
I’m Angel, the oldest Ballplayer. With my foot injuries and problems between my parents, the Ballplayers help get me through the tough times.
As the new summer basketball league kicks off, these five freinds team up to form the Broadway Ballplayers. But Molly and the others run into some serious competition both on and off the court. Can they bring the championship home to Broadway Avenue?
