Total run time: 5:43

This work is set in Paterson, NJ in the historic 10,000-seat municipal stadium. Hinchliffe stadium, now abandoned, was once the home of Negro league baseball during America's Jim Crow era. It was built in 1931-32 on a dramatic escarpment above Paterson's National landmark Great Falls, and surrounded by the city's National Landmark Historic District, the first planned industrial settlement in the nation (chartered 1792).  Ashante Timoll, a local basketball coach, performs a series of labors including managing the equipment, practicing drills, and tending to the stadium.
