Update on “Touching The Game, Alaska”

Rough cuts of the film are going out this week to Alaska League GMs and a few others in the baseball world to review.   Our plan is still to have screenings this summer in the four Alaska League cities.  We are also investigating film festivals and talking to cable television outlets about airing the film.  The DVD will also be released sometime this year. Unfortunately, we did not get into this year’s Tribeca Film Festival, which is a little disappointing but was always a long shot at best.  The good news to come out of it is now we are not as rushed to finalize all aspects of the film, and can better focus on our original plan for summer release.  Keep checking our website for more updates.  We think we have a great film and are very excited for it’s release!

Peter Gammons talks Alaska Baseball!

Down in Spring Training, we recently were able to get an interview with ESPN Baseball Analyst Peter Gammons for our soon to be released Alaska film.  Gammons, who often can be found around the Cape Cod Baseball League each summer was a big part of Touching The Game, The Story of The Cape Cod Baseball League.  His knowledge of baseball is unsurpassed and he always has great stories.  Peter has only been to Alaska once in 1984, but it was enough to see Randy Johnson pitch for the Anchorage Glacier Pilots. He told that story and talked in depth about the league.  He joins a host of famous past and present Major League players as part of our documentary, scheduled to be released later this summer.
