Overview

A rousing and empowering story of dedication and overcoming all odds, featuring the tough and unforgettable athletes of the champion Lady Tigers softball team. Violence was a way of life forthegirls of Mott Middle SchoolintheSouth Bronx. Some woke up to it at home, and others dodged it ontheway to school. Vicious physical fights broke outinclassrooms, hallways, andbathrooms.These girls filedtheir fingernailsinto sharp points becausethey had to be ready to go at any time.Then a new coach joinedtheranks at Mott Middle, and a new program began: girl’s softball. Coach Astacio offersthegirlsthetime and attentionthey need to taketheir first steps to success.Asthey learned to throw, hit and field,they also dealt withthefoul balls life threw atthem: abuse, fractured homes, and violence wherever they looked.Butthebiggest challengethey faced was learning to think and act like a team, not just a bunch of fierce girls against each other—andtheworld. Lady Tigers in the Concrete Jungleis theincredible true story that capturedthehearts of millions whenthey wereinvited to appear on Ellen earlier this year. TheLadyTigerswereinvited ontothefield at Yankee Stadium wherethe Yankees honored Coach Astacio with “Coach of the Year” at their Hispanic Heritage Month Community Achievement Awards in September 2017. But beyond the headlines, this is a story of a self-selected community coming together with faith, courage, and new-found values to overcome fear, violence, and crippling doubt. These girls have ushered in a new confidence and pride not only in themselves, but in their school, the faculty, and their friends. And while not all of them have continued down this new path, many are now the first in their families to go to college and are beginning to see how being a Lady Tiger will always be a part of their lives.
