Little known fact: There's a baseball "league" at San Quentin State Prison consisting of two teams: the Giants and the A's. The baseball tradition goes back to the 1920s at the prison, and The New York Times teamed up with local producers Heist to make this documentary short about what the teams look like now, and what the convicts have to say about getting to play.

As one of the convicts in the film says, "When I first got here at San Quentin and I heard there was a team, I was happy. A bunch of guys, convicts, trying to change our lives for the better, trying to play as a team... right away I wanted to try out."

Also, as the NYT notes, "Visiting teams from adult leagues around California come to the prison to play the Giants and A’s, but in between those games, the two teams square off against each other."
