Bad Hombres


The Rose Bowl Institute will address issues of race and sports raised in the movie, Bad Hombres and how they can have direct resonance with local American communities, especially ones in states bordering on the US-Mexican border. To bring these home to Pasadena, and particularly its significant Latinx community, the Rose Bowl Institute is hosting a panel at the Rose Bowl Stadium in the Club Lounge in the Terry Donahue Pavilion.

Bad Hombres is a documentary produced and distributed by Showtime Network, which shows the issues surrounding the Bad Hombres baseball
team. The team is the only known bi-national baseball team representing Laredo, Texas, and New Laredo, Mexico. Everyday, players cross the border
to practice and play with each other despite variant living conditions and political barriers posed by the border and the building of a wall at the border.

Showtime will provide a means for interested Pasadena residents to view Bad Hombres ahead of time, and will offer clips for discussion among the
panelists and audience.
