When her social skills teacher makes her write a letter to someone, Vivy knows exactly who to choose: her hero, Major League pitcher VJ Capello. Then two amazing things happen: A coach sees Vivy's amazing knuckleball and invites her to join his team. And VJ starts writing back Now Vivy is a full-fledged pitcher, with a catcher as a new best friend and a steady stream of advice from VJ.
