Recently, we’ve been in touch with John Fitzgerald, who created the documentary program Playing for Peanuts. He offered us episodes of the show, which focuses on the day-to-day grind of playing in the minors, and we jumped at the chance.
Here’s John’s description:
The show follows a year in the life of the South Georgia Peanuts. The Peanuts were an independent team based in Albany, GA in the now defunct South Coast League.
“Playing for Peanuts” was filmed alot like an independent film – it was financed with credit cards and our camera crew lived much like the players we were filming, surviving on fast food, cheap hotels and a shoestring budget. The show was seen on 9 regional sports networks in 9 cities and has been featured in The New York Times, New York Post and the Chicago Daily Herald.
Here’s episode 1.1, enjoy!
