Ricardo Perez is in his third year of A-ball as a back-up catcher, barely hitting above The Mendoza Line (.200). His wife Christina is tired of spending the summers in a small hot valley town with no friends, caring for their two year old son and working part-time jobs while supporting Ricardo’s dream. As undocumented immigrants, they are constantly looking over their shoulders.
