The Making Of A Team - Another Prelude To An Off Broadway Performance
Enter a town,
Where money was scarce,
but dreams were great.
Men of color,
and the people in their midst.
Surrounded by hate,
yet still determined to persist.
A chance at real baseball,
this game they lived and breathed.
The only way out of oppression,
to play in those Negro Leagues.
Their dreams were quite simple,
not much different from any other man.
A house, a family... Just to be equal where they stand.
As we look back in time,
unfair as it may seem.
This story must be told,
to preserve the essence of a dream.
So in an effort to keep such ignorance,
again from it's ugly head to be seen.
Ladies and Gentlemen!
We now present to you...
"The Making Of A Team".
