Baseball bats, a smiling Latino adult male, a bunch of young boys gathered together. Not so bad for the Times. But, this picture was taken in Watts, the desperate neighborhood of Los Angeles, with an article saying many Latinos are moving into the blighted, vacated neighborhoods. You have an adult male teaching young kids about life, baseball, and how to accept disappointment. And he's smiling.

- This picture symbolizes hope in a poor urban area, with actions, with baseball, and God help the guy that let this slip through...THE MAN IS WEARING A YANKEE CAP! In Los Angeles.
