Opposite Field

A love letter to the game of baseball from the place you’d least expect, Opposite Field is the true story of the first African team to play in the Little League World Series. Filmmaker Jay Shapiro follows a group of Ugandan boys as they learn to embrace America’s pastime, giving the people of their poverty-stricken land something to cheer for in the process.

Director Jay Shapiro and producer Nick Goldfarb in attendance for screening!
