It’s more than a game, it’s a lesson for life. Played out on the fields between two iconic youth baseball programs in Milwaukee. The leagues, the Beckum-Stapleton Little League and the Felix Mantilla Little League, were both inspired by two hometown heroes and professional players. Wearing the uniform is considered a rite of passage for urban kids as they hone their skills in baseball and life.
