Alaska Players in the Film

We began filming Touching the Game, Alaska in the summer of 2006. The players we followed and talked to that summer and the following summer of 2007 have, for the most part, all moved on from college baseball. For a few players, the end of college means the end of their baseball careers, but most go on to play professionally at some level. Here is a list of some of the college players who spent a summer in Alaska and took part in our film.... and where they are playing baseball now. Keep an eye out, you'll likely see some of these guys in the Major Leagues some day.
