Butch talked and I listened about the Ballhawks and baseball and a few other topics. He told me about a Cub catcher from the early 1900’s, Jimmy Archer. Archer was considered to have the best throwing arm of any catcher in the “Dead Ball Era.” It was a long, educational and bizarre conversation that made me lose track of time and the game that was going on inside of Wrigley. A baseball game is different like that. There’s no clock and it moves at its own pace. Kind of like my conversation with Butch and our film.
Any true Cub fan understands the virtue of patience. We waited a year to revise our trailer and shave a few minutes off the film’s running time. I’m proud of the way we made Ballhawks and the final film.
On April 20th, Ballhawks will realize a dream come true, due to the passion, talent and hard work of many people. With their most gracious support, we will launch our film on YouTube’s feature movie platform at http://www.youtube.com/movies
We are also in the process of submitting the film to ITunes and Hulu and hope to have Ballhawks available on these and other platforms by late spring or summer. Due to our license agreement with Major League Baseball, we have no plans for Broadcast or DVD sales.
