The sign at the ball park says "No Monsters Allowed!", but that doesn't stop Roscoe from sneaking a little monster named Gus into a baseball game. It seems they're not alone as more monsters begin slipping into the ball park to join the fun. Giant puppets bring the history and tradition of baseball alive through songs, stories, and poems. There's room for everyone, including the audience, to celebrate America's favorite past time.
