One of the members of a 1955, all-black little league baseball team from South Carolina will throw the first pitch at this year's Little League World Series. Fifty years ago, the Cannon Street YMCA team was barred, because of race, from playing for the championship.

Guests:

John Bailey, former member of Canon Street Little League team
