  • Climax
  • Michael is the best player on his all-star baseball team, the Clippers. Meanwhile a foster care agency is investigating Michael and his brother because they don't have parents living with them. Justin who plays on the rival team and coaches from other teams don't believe Michael is 12. They demand to see his birth certificate which Michael doesn't have because it was left in Cuba when Michael came to New York with his brother and his dad.
  • Falling Action
  • During one of Michael's baseball games a girl shows up and watches him play. Her name is Lily and she and Michael become good friends. At the same time Michael needs to get someone to pretend to be his dad so the foster care agency doesn't find out about him living alone. He must get his birth certificate or he won't be able to play.
