All Star Game and Wrigley Field

July 2019, We were invited to bring The Other Boys of Summer to the Mid Summer Classic where the film was featured as part of All Star Week in Cleveland. Not only did we screen the film at “The Bridge” – MLB’s Diversity and Inclusion activation, but we had the chance to chat with Sharon Robinson, Maybelle Blair (of the All American Girls Professional Baseball League) and many more.

We also got the call up to Wrigley Field where we did a free community program on the side of the historic venue. It was great to work with MLB’s Diversity & Inclusion department and Cubs Charities.

Barnstorming Tour

We’ve been on a barnstorming tour with our film “The Other Boys of Summer”. We were invited to “The Jazz & Jackie Celebration” put on by The Negro Leagues Baseball Museum in KC in April. The LA Times mentioned us as something not to miss.

From KC we traveled to Dallas where The Texas Rangers invited us to their Youth Academy. We did a free community program sharing the film and following it up with a panel discussion that included Texas Ranger CF, Delino DeSheilds Jr., retired Pitcher, Darren Oliver and Director, Lauren Meyer.
