When the results are posted for the league's all-star team, the Marsers are dumbfounded over the exclusion of team captain Alexia Colwin. "Chipmunk" Adelman secretly sends out a flyer protesting that Alexia didn't make the team because she's a girl. Word is out all over town, and the Marsers are furious. When the big weekend arrives, everyone heads to Windsor to watch. But the all-stars get food poisoning and the Mars team must replace them in the finals. Are the Marsers up for the challenge?
