Troy is a tragic-hero; he sees himself as a good provider but carries a major chip on his shoulder. He was once a great baseball player in the Negro Leagues, but he was too old to join the Major Leagues when they were integrated. He thought he should have been a star. His past mistakes and failures greatly influence his outlook on life and his relationship with his sons. He sees himself as a sacrifice so his sons can do better.
