"The aim of playing cricket is to teach people how to respect themselves and respect authority so they stop killing each other" -- Team Founder, Compton Cricket Club, Ted Hayes

The "Homies and the POPz" Compton Cricket Club, (CCC) is club based in Los Angeles USA. The CCC Homies & the POPz is the only all American born cricket team in the world today. The Homies & POPz dubbed "America's Team" and global "US Ambassadors" of Good Will and Peace of the sporting world of Cricket, plays amateur competition in a local Los Angeles leagues, called Los Angeles Social Cricket Alliance, as well as exhibition matches wherever they can. Actually, the H&Pz has won the leagues Cup Championship twice. Pretty good for an American team competing against folks who have the sport all their lives such as ex-patriots from India, England, West Indies, Pakistan, Australia, South Africa, et al.

In February, the Compton Cricketers toured Australia, where they made huge numbers of new friends and fans. Currently they play on the LASCA and you can catch them most weekends out on the pitch. Check out their website for more information.
