After jumping off the train to St. Louis, Griffith, Woody, and Dog find their way back to the Travelin' Nine. Meanwhile, the rest of the team prepares for the next game--but before they can even get warmed up, the game is cancelled. Still fearing they are being followed and even more worried they have a traitor in their midst, the team travels to New Orleans, where the magic of their ball and the music of the city create one memorable game. But like always, trouble is right around the corner and the hits keep on coming for the Payne family and all of the Travelin' Nine.
