We have a baseball game in Red Oak Park soon. Come and see it.
A baseball game? Of course.
But Miki, the team is weak.
That’s true, I’m not athletic, but I love baseball,
How about the other players?
They are all keen players.
Hmm. Is this a school team?
Yes, anyone can sign up.
Are you interested, Miki?
Sure, I was on the city team in Nagasaki.
Then help us, Miki！
David, can Lewis join the baseball game in Red Oak Park?
Hmm, I don’t think so.
Well, he is a musician. His hands are important.
Yeah. He is afraid of an accident.
Can Chris join us then?
Chris? An actor has a busy schedule.
You never know. Chris is athletic. He looks like a quiet boy, but he likes sports.
Then let’s ask him.
Who is that girl with the brown jacket?
You mean Miki? She moved here from Japan last month.
She is too friendly with Chris. I hate that.
Why? They are just classmates.
No one talks to Chris easily. His fans respect his privacy.
Miki is not his fan. And Chris is just a student at school.
That’s true. But she is new here. Only his close friends can talk to him.
I’m going to practice baseball with my friends after school. We have a game soon.
I’m free today. I can watch your practice.
America is the home of baseball. Maybe the other students are really good players.
I hope so! I want a challenge.
Guess what? I have tickets for a Major League game.
Dad, that’s wonderful! When is it?
They are for June.
Oh, I can’t wait.
Hi, Maria、what’s up？
Where is Chris?
He will be here later. He is busy right now. You know that.
Chris finishes work around noon. The practice starts at two. He can come at three.
You know a lot about Chris’s schedule.
He told me. He can practice with us. He promised me.
He promised you?
Chris doesn’t like a lot of attention. Don’t bother him.
You did a good job. This garden is a nice size for a beginner.
Thanks for your help.
No problem. You will be a good gardener.
I hope so. I liked the vegetables from your garden. They were delicious.
You can grow delicious vegetables too. What seeds do you have?
Well … eggplant, cucumber, green pepper …
That’s good. Now plant the seeds tomorrow. It will rain hard tonight.
Okay, I’ll do that.
Lewis, when is your parents’ concert in Central Park?
What kind of concert is it?
It’s part of Central Park’s events.
Every summer we look forward to the concerts jazz, operas, and pop music.
Can I go too?
Sure. Everyone is going.
Talk to your parents. They will be interested too.
You lie on the lawn, look at the sky, and listen to music. It’s fantastic!
And bring a picnic dinner.
Good morning, Ms. Wilson.
Good morning, Chris. Let’s talk about your morning schedule.
You have a press conference at ten. A meeting with the costume designer is at eleven. Okay, sure.
Gee, Chris, you look happy these days. Yeah, a Japanese girl came to my school. She is a good baseball player. Perhaps we’ll be good friends.
Ms. Wilson, may I ask a question? Uh, sure.
The girl, Miki, is going to play in a baseball game next Saturday. May I play in that game too? Baseball? Hmm, I worry about an injury.
I think that baseball is a safe sport. I’ll be careful.
Are you sure?
Yeah. And I have time that day. The movie shooting ends before lunch. And the game starts at two.
Well then, go and help your new friend’s team.
Oh, no！David missed the ball again.
Calm down, Lewis. Don’t worry. Miki is next. She is an amazing batter.
I know. She can hit fast balls. But David …
I think this one-run game is thrilling.
Thrilling? No way. Do you think that our team will win? Chris isn’t here.
Wow! Miki got a hit again! This is our chance.
And it’s going to be a big chance. Look! Here comes Chris
Hey, Chris. Why are you so late?
Sorry. Filming was delayed.
It’s already the bottom of the ninth. We need a homer.
Okay. I’ll hit a homer.
Are you sure? Their pitcher is too strong.
I’ll try my best.
Only Miki got a hit. Everyone else struck out.
I’ll take that challenge.
Really? Will you hit a homer? That will turn the game around.
You like Chris, I guess.
Me? Of course not. Well, maybe a little.
Okay. A lot.
You should invite him to your birthday party.
But we have the fan club rule … And he is so busy ..
He will come. Why don’t you ask him? Oh, look!v It’s Chris’s turn.
He is so cool!
It’s a home run!
We won, thanks to Chris!
