Charlie lived in a small town with his mother and sister. His father had passed away when Charlie was just a baby. Every day, Charlie watched as other kids played catch with their dads. He wished he could do the same. But instead of feeling sad, Charlie decided to be determined and learn how to play catch on his own.

Charlie went to the park and bought a baseball and glove with his pocket money. He threw the ball up in the air and tried catching it. At first, he missed, but Charlie didn't give up. He kept practicing every day, even when it was tough. He knew determination was the key.
