David talked with director Gaspar Gonzalez about his new documentary "A Long Way from Home: The Untold Story of Baseball’s Desegregation."

Jackie Robinson broke baseball’s color line in 1947, but it took another generation of Black and Latino players to make the sport truly open to all. Playing in remote minor-league towns, these were the men who, before they could live their big-league dreams, first had to beat Jim Crow.  Featuring James “Mudcat” Grant, Orlando Cepeda, Tony Pérez, Jimmy Wynn, Grover “Deacon” Jones, J.R. Richard, Enos Cabell, Octavio “Cookie” Rojas, Orlando Peña, and Bobby Tolan.

Live in the studio will be Washington Post reporter Nick Eilerson -- we discuss his article "Verbal abuse from parents, coaches is causing a referee shortage in youth sports."
