Storyline

The convent baseball team has its first game on the weekend. Generous Carlos outfits the team so that it will at least look like it knows what it's doing; in other words, the convent team is the underdog in the game. The team is flanked by small but enthusiastic Armando, the team's pinch hitter, who is being adopted in a month. Armando himself realizes that he is not the best player, but loves the game. There ends up being a change in plans with his adoption: his parents-to-be arrive in San Juan early and want to take him off the island just before the big game as they need to be in Miami that evening for his father to accept a prestigious honor. Armando is so devastated by missing the game that he wants to give up baseball for good. However his parents realize that this is not a good way to start their family life, and rush Armando back to the game. Despite being down 43 runs, Armando saves the name of the convent team by hitting a fluke home run. They have a moral victory, if not ... Written by Huggo

A game is far more important than the score
10 September 2018 | by JordanThomasHallSee all my reviews

Sister Bertrille is leading the boys at the orphanage in playing baseball. Some of the boys feel Armando (George Spell) is too little to play. Seeking unity, she arranges for them to play the strong La Mar team in San Juan. Carlos buys them new equipment, with their uniform logo "Casino Carlos". The couple who is adopting Armando is arriving early and he is upset to be leaving before the game. He daydreams hitting off Dodgers great Don Drysdale. On the day of the big game, the victory may be far more than the score.
