“The Royal” is based on the powerful and inspiring true story of Willie Mays Aikens.

The promising career of Kansas City Royals slugger Willie Mays Aikens quickly turns disastrous because of drug addiction. Sentenced to prison, Aikens seeks redemption with his estranged family, friends and ultimately with himself.

Faith and family helped baseball legend Aikens survive his historically unjust incarceration, but he quickly finds upon his release that faith and family — and addiction and fame — are still as hard as hitting a curveball.
