Exclusive preview of new footage
First, huge thanks to every one of you who made it possible for us to get this close to the finish line. As I looked through the list of friends, Sox fans, Minnie Minoso connections, and some of you who just appeared, I continue to marvel at how meaningful the extent and feelings behind the outpouring of support.
We've been able to enrich the documentary with archival materials that will help make it more fun, more entertaining, and a better historical document about and with Minnie. As we continue to screen and edit the more than 30 hours we have shot with him, it becomes clearer how important and overlooked he has been...and what wonderful human being he is.
Today, we're pleased to show you a few minutes that nobody else has seen and would love to get your feedback.
Enjoy it and please know how important this process and your contribution to it has been.
