“If you thought
was a revelatory work, you’ll be down with
this film. . .”
– Stan Bunger, KCBS Radio,
The Baseball Reliquary is pleased to announce
that the DVD of Jon Leonoudakis’s 2012
Exactly Cooperstown, is now available for
purchase through the organization.
Leonoudakis’s 69-minute film, described
as “an unorthodox look at baseball’s most
orthodox game” and “a star-spangled journey into
the heart and soul of baseball,” received its
world premiere in Pasadena, California in August
2012, followed by several screenings in the San
Francisco Bay Area.
Exactly Cooperstown is the story of how the
film’s producer/director rediscovered his love
for the national pastime through the Baseball
Reliquary, an eclectic, fan-based think tank
founded in 1996.
The organization’s grassroots,
anti-establishment approach to baseball history
resonated with Leonoudakis, who decided to spend
a year following the organization, documenting
its activities, seeing what makes it tick, and
then sharing the results.
The film is full of surprises.
“This isn’t your father’s baseball
documentary,” says Leonoudakis.
“My film is a bold stew of Americana,
folklore, sex, religion, scandal, fandom,
poetry, sport, and art.”
Included are clips from past ceremonies
for the Shrine of the Eternals, and a rendition
of the National Anthem that will guarantee to
have you standing and smiling.
Leonoudakis also features commentaries
and insights by a cavalcade of experts, fans,
free-thinkers, and non-conformists, including
former major league pitchers Jim Bouton and Bill
“Spaceman” Lee; the San Diego Chicken; filmmaker
Ron Shelton (Bull
Durham); author Arnold Hano (A
Day in the Bleachers); journalists John
Schulian, Ron Rapoport, and David Kipen; and
artist and activist Tomas Benitez.
