About this project
I am producing a documentary about the "Kitty League". The Kentucky Illinois and Tennessee League was a class D Minor League that had many "lives" from 1903 - 1955. Many Major League players started their careers in the small towns the league called home including: Tony Kubek and Hall of Famers Red Schoendienst and Edd Roush.
I am a television producer with all of my own production gear. I have a lot of research and many interviews already completed. I have all the resources to complete the project I just have to raise the funds.
The money will be used for the second and third phases of the documentary. I need a few more interviews with the last remaining players from the Kitty League, historians, and document the last few baseball fields that still exist. The money will also be used better the production value of the material that I already have including photo enhancement, narration, and musical score recordings.
I recently co-authored a book on the KITTY League. A lot of my research and findings are complete. I have made many connections that will assist in the final production pieces.
Risks and challenges
The largest obstacle is that the league was very geographically dispersed. Getting to all of these different places and shooting what is left of some of the ballparks will take several weeks. I already have the connections necessary for shooting permits. Another obstacle is timing. I have several interviews from former players. The sad part is that a few have since passed on. I am looking to finish the project and document as much from the first person perspective as I can.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
