The gang is back with another wacky adventure. Reese has lost the magic coin to his arch-enemy, Seamus Snodgrass, and he's terrified to see who Seamus might bring forward from the past. Reese doesn't have to wait long to find out. As he and Seamus struggle for control of the coin, they suddenly find themselves outside the Coliseum. Before they realize what's going on, they're put in chains and taken before the Emperor. Can Reese and his friends convince the Romans that a game of baseball would be way more entertaining than feeding them to the lions? It's their only chance!
