Noted for its fervent, if unrequited, devotion to the Boston Red Sox, Kingdom Common sports a replica of Fenway Park's Green Monster. Here, in a region that lags decades behind the rest of New England, eight year old Ethan "E.A." Allen lives with his honky-tonk mother and the acid-tongued Gran, wheelchair-bound since the Sox’s heart-wrenching playoff loss to the Yankees in 1978. Into the world of the Allen family comes a drifter named Teddy, who is determined to do one decent thing in his life by teaching E.A. everything he knows about baseball.
