Premise[edit]

The series is about a boy who gets his dream job working as a batboy for his favorite major-league baseball team, the fictional New York Empires. Throughout the story, 16-year-old Pete Young (played by Sumpter) goes through normal and not so normal problems of a teenager. Pete's sister (played by Storms) is a rebellious teen who deals with drinking, sex, and drugs.

The show is based on the experiences of Matthew McGough, a batboy for the New York Yankees who graduated from Williams College and Fordham University School of Law, and lives in New York City. His book Bat Boy: Coming of Age with the New York Yankees was published by Doubleday in 2005. ISBN 978-0-307-27864-7
