I was watching the Red Sox game on NESN when I saw a small advertisement for a documentary to be aired on March 30th called, "Impossible To Forget: Summer of '67," about the 1967 Impossible Dream Red Sox team. I write this for a special reason.
I was interviewed for this documentary back in February.
Brett Rapkin, who made the excellent Bill Lee documentary, "Spaceman: A Baseball Odyssey," was asked by the Red Sox to make a documentary about the 40th anniversary of the 1967 Red Sox team that shocked the baseball world and won the AL pennant that year. My buddy Chris asked me if I'd like to be a part of it back in January, and I agreed.
I spent an afternoon in Februaury being interviewed about the team, Boston baseball and how they pulled it off. I was really honored to take part in it. The interview went great, but because of some problems with the lighting, I had to do it without my glasses. It should be interesting to see how I look on film without them. (And of course, I certainly hope I made the final cut!)
NESN will be debuting the film on March 30th at 8:30 PM and replayed again the next afternoon at 4 PM. Here is the lowdown on the documentary from NESN's web site:
