Silent Pride is a true heart-warming American classic set in 1930s Brooklyn that paints a portrait of the rapidly changing way of life in America. It touches on the ageless theme of a young man striving for his American Dream as a professional baseball player, and his struggles with love, prejudice, family, friendship, religion, and identity. The story is a tale of semi-pro baseball in New York at the time of Hank Greenberg, and the Negro League greats of Satchel Paige and Josh Gibson.
Bill, a Jewish boy growing up in Brooklyn during the great depression, makes his journey into manhood as he pursues his dream to become a professional baseball player. Despite all obstacles, Bill is determined to reach the big leagues and play alongside Ruth and the Yankees. Bill s struggle with his religious identity erupts into a family feud, and his pursuit of the American Dream becomes a quest for self-fulfillment against a backdrop of pride and prejudice.
