Mosby Spartans take Hotchkiss Eagles 5-3 and bring baseball back

Style Weekly gives the cover to the Mosby Spartans and their coach Lawrence Day:

For most of the Mosby players, baseball didn’t exist four months ago. The game played by their fathers and grandfathers, sparking a Civil Rights movement when Jackie Robinson made his debut with the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947, isn’t supposed to be relevant. There are few baseball gloves in the projects, where football and basketball rule the streets, and there’s no good reason to explain why these boys started showing up at dusty Lucks Field after school.
