Lucy está tirando la pelota con su familia en el parque cuando le invitan a unirse al equipo de béisbol de sus amigos.

Su amable entrenador les enseña las reglas básicas de ofensa y defensa, mientras practican cómo fieldear, batear y agarrar la pelota. Después, utilizan sus nuevas habilidades en un partido, donde Lucy tendrá que superar su miedo a ser golpeada por la pelota. Con la ayuda del entrenador Al, Lucy sube al plato y batea lo mejor que puede. Con su papel principal en el exhilarante fin del juego, Lucy entiende por qué el béisbol es un deporte tan divertido para jugar con la familia y los amigos.

Lucy juega al béisbol es el sexto libro en la serie «Lucy hace deporte», siguiendo a títulos sobre baloncesto, hockey, fútbol, pista corta y trineo. La serie anima a los niños a ser activos y participar en deportes y actividades recreativas.
