"Have Glove, Will Travel"

My friend Brett Rapkin, a noted filmmaker I had the pleasure of working with back in 2006 on the terrific documentary "Impossible to Forget: The Story of the '67 Boston Red Sox", has as his newest project a new independent film about the great former Red Sox pitcher Bill Lee called "Have Glove, Will Travel" and knowing what I know about The Spaceman, it's sure to be another worthy effort.

Brett also did the great documentary about The Spaceman and his travels to Cuba a few years back called "Spaceman: A Baseball Odyssey."

At this point, Brett is looking for people to help him with the backing of the film, and he is doing it through Kickstarter.

Brett has a goal of $37,000 by August 25th, and is still a ways away. You can contribute any amount you like to the cause, and you will be rewarded if you contribute certain amounts.

"Have Glove, Will Travel" just had a nice article written about it at the Boston Globe.

And here is a short clip about the film:


I encourage all of you who are Red Sox fans, as well as Bill Lee fans, to help out with this project. Brett is a terrific filmmaker, and this is something that I personally can't wait to see happen.
