The next public screening for “Not Exactly Cooperstown,” Jon Leonoudakis’s documentary about the Baseball Reliquary, will be at the John M. Pfau Library on the campus of California State University, San Bernardino. The date will be Sunday, April 21, at 2:00 p.m. This is a notable screening as it is the first time the 69-minute documentary will be shown in the Inland Empire, plus the John M. Pfau Library is the home of the Latino Baseball History Project. The Reliquary has been a partner with the LBHP since its inception, and this relationship is featured in the section of the film entitled “Barrio Baseball.” The event is free, and will include a pre-screening trivia contest; attendees are encouraged to arrive in their best baseball regalia for the chance to win a special prize. “Not Exactly Cooperstown” DVDs will be available for sale for $20. A flyer is attached. For further information, including directions and parking, contact Iwona Contreras at the Pfau Library by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (909) 537-5102.
If you haven’t checked out the “Not Exactly Cooperstown” Web site lately, Jon Leonoudakis has added lots of new material, including photos from recent Northern California screenings, and a collection of “behind the scenes” essays about Bill “Spaceman” Lee, Jim Bouton, Arnold Hano, and the making of the musical score for the film. These are great additions to an already content-rich site. The URL is www.notexactlycooperstown.com.
