Keeping it Cricket in the City of Compton

We’ve heard much over the years of Ted Hayes and his work in organising street kids into cricket teams in Los Angeles. NPR‘s (National Public Radio) News and Notes program on Thursday did a feature on Hayes’ latest project – the Dome Village of Compton, California – and its cricket team, the Compton Homies.

NPR’s brilliant website (which, in my opinion, is superior in many ways even to BBC Online) has links to the audio report, in both RA and WMA, as well as further audio material which didn’t get to air. Plus a photo gallery, links to the Dome Village website, and links to earlier NPR stories on cricket (six in the last four years).
