Following the team owners’ struggles to bring their underfunded league to prominence despite the odds; “BlackBalled” is an intimate look at the rise and fall of Negro League Baseball.

The integration of baseball brought the promise of diversity, unity and a progression of society during a time when Jim Crow was still being practiced. However this advancement in the world of sports came with a heavy price. Based on the remarkable true story: owners Effa Manley, Cumberland Posey and Gus Greenlee take center stage in this often overlooked moment in history.
