Co-filmmaker Lynn Novick and Tom Verducci of Sports Illustrated. Lynn calling me asking if I would be interested in being part of the film was one of the great surprises. I was humbled by the invitation. Tom's voice in the film really brings power to each segment and the story of the 1996 Yankees, especially, to life.

Baseball: The Tenth Inning NYC Premiere

The most tremendous moment of a tremendous night: sitting next to Rachel Robinson for the entire film. A very magical and humbling experience. The best part was when the film would show footage of Jackie, she would light up just a little. I hope she couldn't tell I was watching her reactions to the film as much as the film itself...

Ken Burns and Keith Olbermann. Keith was tremendous last night, with keen insights on baseball and Shirley Sherrod and President Obama. My kinda discussion!

Baseball: The Tenth Inning

I absolutely love the actor Keith David, and every time I talked to him last night, all I could think of was his great line in Dead Presidents: "Money to burn." When I finally did it, he laughed (Hey, you gotta give it up for dialogue!) The best part is he liked the new Shirt of Shirts!
