Byron's documentary, "THE LEAGUE", has been accepted into the 2023 Tribeca Film Festival!
A theatrical release will be coming to major cities in the US in July, and then available
on all major platforms, including Apple and Amazon!
One of the most fascinating aspects of the Negro Baseball Leagues is that its impact stretches beyond the baseball diamond. Negro Baseball League history is draped in a fabric that mirrors America’s culture. From segregation to integration, the progression of America’s race relation journey is literally reflected in events that unfolded in the Negro Baseball Leagues.
The historic signing of Negro Baseball League player Jackie Robinson to the major leagues was
“the beginning of the modern day Civil Rights movement”.
The film is a tribute that honors Byron's late father, Negro League umpire Bob Motley!
