New York Yankees All-Star catcher Jorge Posada and New York Giants running back Tiki Barber will guest-star as baseball coaches of the Harlem Teen League in The N’s upcoming teen mini-series, Miracle’s Boys, the network said Thursday.

Spike Lee, LeVar Burton, Bill Duke, Ernest Dickerson and Neema Barnette will each direct one or more episodes of the six-episode miniseries about three half-Puerto Rican, half-African-American, orphaned teen-age brothers living in Harlem and their struggle to hold their family together.

Miracle’s Boys is based on the novel of the same name by award-winning young-adult author Jacqueline Woodson.
