Let Them Play, by Margot Theis Raven; Older
True story about segregated Charleston, South Carolina, 1955: There are 62 official Little League programs in South Carolina. All but one team is composed entirely of white players. One YMCA formed an all black team (Cannon Street), and had hopes of playing in the state's annual Little League Tournament. The other leagues refused to play against the black team and pulled out of the program. As the remaining Little League team in the state, Cannon Street was named state winner by default. While the Cannon Street team is invited to the game as guests, they are not allowed to participate since they have not officially played and won their state's tournament.
