When a Cuban-born ballplayer is abducted, his sportswriter fiancee and her fraternal twin sister uncover evidence about the crime that powerful people would rather keep hidden. Let's Play Ball dramatizes the struggles of the sisters against the backdrops of immigration, global conflict, and the nation's pastime. More
Miranda is a bright, attractive woman with an important government job, a nice home, and a prominent lawyer husband. Her fraternal twin sister, Jessica, is a sportswriter who has spent years sacrificing her social life and conventional career prospects to establish a magazine. Jessica's publication has finally caught on after receiving renown for an article she wrote about local baseball star Manny Chavez. She chronicled Manny's perilous journey back to his native Cuba to retrieve his son, who had been abducted by his unstable ex-wife Guadalupe.
Jessica, now engaged to Manny, invites Miranda, her husband Tommy, and their parents to join her in a luxury suite to watch the hometown Washington Filibusters take on their archrivals, the Florida Keys, in a championship game. As they are wined and dined by the team owner, Miranda envies her sister's seemingly perfect life and faces the reality that her own is a facade. But when Manny disappears from the ballpark after the game, and is missing for several agonizing weeks, the "perfect" couple sees their world blow apart. Jessica's suspicions about the kidnapping are wide-ranging, and she is determined to investigate. Nobody seems above suspicion--not Manny's teammates, the team owners, or even Miranda and her husband.
