Set during an Indian summer in the Negro League era, this boisterous, offbeat comedy ranks among the best baseball movies ever made. Satchel Paige-inspired pitcher Bingo Long (Williams) seizes the means of production and breaks away from greedy management with W.E.B. Du Bois-reading slugger Leon Carter (Jones). Pryor steals the show as usual as a player practicing his Spanish in the hopes of making it to the white league.
