Summary
A compelling documentary narrated by John Leguizamo that is a gritty and rare look inside the recruitment of top talent baseball players from the Dominican Republic. Miguel Angel Sano and Jean Carlos Batista are among 100,000 teenagers vying for a handful of coveted contracts with baseball teams. As they turn sixteen years old and become eligible to sign, each must navigate the fiercely competitive and frequently corrupt system if they are to lift their families out of poverty
