story and TV feature about the cricket team made up of ex gang members from Compton has generated an incredible response. The guys have been inundated with with invitations to visit tough neighborhoods in the UK and elsewhere, to try to spread their message of civility and sportsmanship through the game of cricket.
The team returns to Los Angeles from Australia at the weekend and they have big plans in the works for the future. It's an inspirational story and there is going to be much more to say about the Compton Homies and the Popz.
