Willie is worried. He's already struck out in his Little League baseball game, and now he needs to find a savings bank to bring to school for a project tomorrow. His dad gives him a bank made from a coconut shell, a gift he's been saving for Willie. It's from the Philippines, where his father grew up, and it has, his dad promises, a treasure inside, from when Dad was a kid. The day arrives and the bank is broken open. Inside, hidden among all the play money, is a valuable Willie Mays baseball card!
