“Smarty Marty’s Got Game” is an inspiring story about a girl named Marty, who tries to teach the game of baseball to her younger brother Mikey who is not interested. Marty was nicknamed “Smarty Marty” by her friends at school because she loved and knew more about the game than most adult fans. When Marty and Mikey attend a real baseball game together, she gradually teaches Mikey about the game and before long, Mikey grows to love the game and is cheering along with his sister.
