Sugar Trailer

This one comes from the writer/director or Half Nelson, one of my favorite movies of all time. It could be that I just have a certain empathy for it since I spent many years of my life as a white, crack-addicted male teaching inner-city kids in NY. I miss those days. Hopefully Sugar will be on the level. I don’t know much about baseball, but I do have a black friend.
