Synopsis

Baseball is widely considered to be the national sport of the United States of America and kids all around the country dream of making it to the big leagues. This short animation, based on a true story, takes place in 1975 when the gender divide was even more apparent and a young girl calling herself Pete is desperate to play in her little league team. Sporting a short haircut and the traditional baseball uniform, nobody notices or cares that Pete is a girl – but when her gender is discovered, the trouble begins as the parents of other players begin to voice their disapproval. The rest of Pete’s team, however, have their own outlook on this discovery. A tiny monument to queer history and experience, this accessible animation also explores how children can often be more accepting than the adults around them.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
