In the midst of all the chaos going on in the world, especially in my United States, it is good to remember constants that bring us together. Like baseball. Apple pie. Hot dogs. Even though baseball is in “full swing” right now, I need to post this video. It makes me feel good when the news makes me feel bad. Next week is July 4th. Like it or not, it is still a happy holiday. SOOO, I am posting this video, produced by STEVE ORLANDELLA with voiceover by (ME!!!) JAY W. MACINTOSH. It is just a moment of baseball, Fenway Park, and the Red Sox!! Steve loved baseball and his Red Sox! He did this video from his upstairs loft office when we were living in the townhouse on Bentley Avenue in Westwood. When he asked me to do the voiceover, I was honored, pleased that he admired my work. I learned a lot about baseball from Steve. I cherish the Emmys (for producing the Jackie Robinson special and the Dodger baseball games) that sit on my bookshelf.
And, since I now know how to post videos to Jayspeakblog (thanks to my niece, Debby Kroll), I present to you a Steve Orlandella short movie – “BASEBALL IS BACK”. That guy knew and loved his baseball!!
