Una historia del tipo ”El príncipe y el pobre/el prisionero de Zenda”, que involucra a un loco árbitro de béisbol al frente de la Iglesia Católica Romana. Un pequeño grupo de reformistas radicales secuestran al Papa y lo sustituyen por uno que creen que pueden controlar. El verdadero Papa escapa de sus captores, pero no puede encontrar ayuda de las autoridades, porque nadie le creerá. En 1980, un grupo de reformistas radicales decide que la verdadera reforma católica no puede llevarse a cabo con un conservador de línea dura en el Papado, y elaboran un plan diseñado para secuestrarlo y ponerlo en su lugar, en el que puedan controlarlo. Se les ocurre un árbitro de béisbol loco, sin trabajo debido a una lesión cerebral traumática. Los Sermones y las Misas se vuelven muy interesantes, cuando el Protestante no practicante trata de fingirlo. El verdadero Papa es capaz de escapar de sus captores, pero hacer que alguien le crea es otra historia. Le ayudan los inadaptados de la sociedad, los jugadores, los traficantes de drogas y los ladronzuelos, cuando la propia Iglesia Católica lo rechaza.
