OH! SHOW PRODUCTIONS ANNOUNCES THE RELEASE OF THE NEW AWARD-WINNING DOCUMENTARY FILM “TIME IN THE MINORS” ON DVD
Boise, ID (October 1st 2010) – Oh! Show Productions announces the release of their latest award winning documentary film, Time In The Minors now available on DVD. Produced and directed by Tony Okun, Time In The Minors presents the compelling story of two professional minor league baseball players on their arduous journey in trying to reach the major leagues. The film is available in two versions as a 60 and 85-minute feature-documentary program.
Every year in June approximately 1500 new players out of high school and college are chosen from the amateur baseball draft and sent to play in the minor leagues. Trying to make it in the fiercely competitive world of professional baseball can make or break you. Time In The Minors documents the lives and passionate dreams of two minor league players on their arduous journey to becoming Major League Baseball players. 19-year-old, John Drennen, a High School All-American center fielder from San Diego, California is selected in the first round of the 2005 amateur baseball draft by the Cleveland Indians and offered a one million dollar signing bonus.
This will mark John’s first full season playing professional baseball. Tony Schrager, a 28-year old infielder out of Omaha, Nebraska was a 6th-round draft pick in 1998 and is an 8-year veteran of the minor leagues. Tony has yet to play at the major league level and this season could be his last shot to make it.
What’s it like trying to make it to the Major Leagues? Follow each player from pre-season and beyond through the physical and emotional ups and downs of a life in professional baseball, and the dream that keeps their hopes alive. Will either player obtain his ultimate goal?
Time In The Minors is being released on DVD and is available through Landmark Media
