Bennie Bruno

Is a small, scrappy everyboy, the kind of kid who has to earn everything he gets with extra effort. Yet he’s big enough to change baseball all by himself.

Coach Jackson

Is an aging veteran, steeped in baseball lore, who doesn’t like the way Bennie plays the game. He tries to force him to drop his special twisty hits.

Johnnie Jett

Is the star third baseman for the Sierra Bears, a young man on the way up who becomes Bennie’s friend.

Ken Sato

Was Bennie’s best friend as a boy, but he becomes his bitter rival.
