Summary

Summary

Jon O'Sheal's documentary The Story of the Negro Leagues details the players and teams that made up professional baseball for black players during a time when they were not allowed to play in Major League Baseball. Narrated by Yankee great Dave Winfield, the documentary allows these players to capture the spotlight now even though fame and fortune was denied them during their playing days. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi
