In 1955 when racial segregation defined the South, two groups of 12-year-old boys stepped onto a baseball field for one of the first integrated Little League games in the South. The all-Black Pensacola Jaycees and the all-White Orlando Kiwanis moved beyond fears, threats, and the unknown to break with tradition and show the world what was possible. Now, more than 60 years later, team captains Will Preyer (Pensacola) and Stewart Hall (Orlando) embark on personal journeys back to the 1955 game and find that the forgotten event can become a bridge to embracing the turbulence of today’s social landscape.
