The Phenom    [Lab Activities]
The Phenom, a play by Barbara Lebow

Award-winning playwright Barbara Lebow’s play is about a young African-American baseball prodigy, Hobie Jackson. Hobie must learn to deal with the formidable legacy of his grandfather, also a celebrated baseball player. Through his unlikely friendship with a much older white woman – a child therapist and an ardent baseball fan – Hobie learns to come into his own.
