In 1979, the 15 teenagers on the Crenshaw High Cougars in inner-city L.A. were the most talented team in the history of high school baseball. They had grown up with the notion that baseball could somehow set things right -- a vague but persistent hope that baseball might be fair. Incredibly, most of this team were drafted into pro baseball. Two of them, Darryl Strawberry & Chris Brown, would reunite as teammates on a Nat. League All-Star roster. But  the lives of these gifted athletes intersect with the realities of being poor, urban, & black in Amer. ďAn unforgettable tale of families grasping for opportunities, of athletes praying for one chance to make it big, of all of us hoping that the will to succeed can triumph over the demons haunting our city streets.Ē
