The story of INVISIBLE MEN centers on the fictitious Clarke family... brothers, Leon and Sam, who play in the Negro Leagues, their sister, Mae and their hard working and very hands on parents, Henrietta and Charles. Along with Nat Holmes, a reporter for the Pittsburgh Courier, they make are the heart and soul of the movie.

Real life characters who figure into the story include many Negro League luminaries, including star players, Josh Gibson, Satchel Paige, Buck O'Neil, Buck Leonard, Oscar Charleston, Willie Wells, Jimmy Crutchfield and Cool Papa Bell, and the legendary Negro Leagues owner and organizer, Gus Greenlee.

Major League Baseball notables who drop in and out of the story include the long reigning and intransigent commissioner, Judge Kenesaw M. Landis, feisty player-manager, Leo Durocher, Dodgers' GM, Branch Rickey and the immortal Babe Ruth, who makes a brief but pivotal appearance.
