Molly Jones loves baseball, specifically the NY METS, still she’s never been to a real game. This brilliant 9-year-old reads Seneca and dreams of catching baseballs, while sleeping under a canopy of monitors in NY Presbyterian Hospital, being treated for Lymphoblastic Leukemia. Her Make-a-Wish is, of course, a Mets game and she has a ticket, not to just any Mets game, but a sudden death playoff game against the “Braves she hates”.  Meanwhile her physician, Dr. Teigen Marshall, has the rare opportunity to administer a new miracle drug, (Fluxamean) but, it must be today, right now, to save Molly’s life. The multiple chemo and radiation treatments haven’t worked. Molly is getting worse and both she and her Doctor know it’s “bottom of the ninth and Casey may be at bat”. Molly does not take this news well and decides to escape the hospital and steal away to the game. With the help of Lance Lane, a burned-out ex-Mets pitcher and Tammy the Toucan, an eccentric hospital clown, Molly sets out on her most unusual odyssey. Meanwhile Dr. Marshall and hospital security are just one step behind them.
