Profile of one of baseball's true pioneers. 89 and going strong, Cuban native broke the color and cultural barriers in 1951 in Chicago.
166 backers pledged $20,744 to help bring this project to life.

The long wait is over!

Baseball's Been Very, Very Good To Me: The Minnie Minoso Story will be completed in the next week. 

It will premiere on WTTW/Channel 11 in Chicago on Tuesday, December 11 from 10 to 11 pm. Stay tuned for information on other airings. 

All of you who chose a reward at the $19 level or above are cordially invited to the special virtual advance viewing party. 

Here's how it will work: You will receive an email shortly before the video goes live that will contain your login information to watch the video. 

The video will be viewable online on Monday, December 3--for only one day in advance of the public premiere on December 11. 

We thank you for your patience. We’re absolutely excited to finally be able to share this labor of love with you. In the next few weeks, we will be able to send you the dvds and t-shirts. Make sure that you responded to our request for your current shipping information. All of it will be sent in one package. 

I am so grateful to each of you 166 backers for helping make this project, 36 years in the making, come to fruition. 

Huge and lasting thanks,
