In 1955, the Cannon Street YMCA in Charleston, South Carolina, chartered the only African-American Little League in the state. That same year, 61 all-white teams pulled out of the state tournament so they wouldn’t have to play against the team. Inspired by true events, this picture book follows one young ballplayer through that fateful season. Full color.
