When Danny can relax, he's an amazing pitcher. But he can't relax. He's painfully shy, and his mixed racial heritage makes him feel too pale-"albino almost"-to fit in with his Mexican relatives. More than anything, though, the disappearance of his father three years ago still weighs heavily on Danny's mind. Then he meets Uno, a boy with his own troubles-and a lot of confidence. As Uno takes Danny under his wing, can he help Danny get his head back in the game?
