Overview

An unlikely team of misfit players, and the coach fighting to hold them all together...

The All Nations Team tells the story of the first fully integrated, "post-racial" baseball team, very loosely based on an actual team that played in the years before World War I.

In his first season as head coach of the All Nations team, former slave George Grunion must contend with racist crowds, flagging team morale, his own loneliness, and even the ghost of the previous head coach. His players are now the only family he has left, ever since his wife walked out on him two decades ago.

And if George can't hold the All Nations together, he loses more than his job. He'll miss his chance to fulfill the prophecy made by his prescient centerfielder Mack -- that he will be reunited with his estranged family before the 1918 season ends.

If George doesn't score this final run, he loses everything.
