Can Richie hang onto his new job and have the experience of a lifetime witnessing Johnny Vander Meer pitch a record two-in-a-row no-hitter? Find out in this heart-warming tale of encouragement, perseverance, and friendship as one young boy learns that baseball is a world where you really can catch rainbows!
