EARLY PRAISE FOR “THE SWEET SPOT–A TREASURY OF BASEBALL STORIES”!

“Baseball is more than just a game…and Jon Leonoudakis captures that with this sterling series”
Arnold Hano, author, “A Day in the Bleachers”

“The Sweet Spot takes us to corners of the baseball world we don’t normally see. Its lively cast of characters are a feast for baseball fans.”
George Gmelch, former professional ballplayer, author, “Playing with Tigers”, and professor of anthropology

“A gem! What makes baseball great is the love of the game by people from all walks of life. Joy and tears are passed down from generation to generation. Only a filmmaker like Jon Leonoudakis could produce The Sweet Spot, which is a most unusual take on the game.”
Denny Tedesco, producer/director, “The Wrecking Crew” music documentary

“Marvelous! Jon Leonoudakis shows us how profoundly baseball can inform our lives. Not to be missed!”
Jean Hastings Ardell, author, “Breaking into Baseball”

“Baseball professionals and fans share their personal stories and passion for the game…fun, inspiring, quirky, and moving, The Sweet Spot is fascinating.”
Robert K. Fitts, baseball historian and author of “Banzai Babe Ruth”

“The passion and joy of baseball is seen through different prisms…the color of the game comes alive…it gave me that magical feeling of being in a ballpark for the first time. The Sweet Spot is terrific!”
Marty Lurie, KNBR San Francisco Giants Radio host

“The Sweet Spot gives us the chance to enjoy baseball through the experience of an assortment of the game’s most impassioned characters. These conversations are timeless and engaging, just like the game itself.”
John Rosengren, author, “The Fight of Their Lives”

“Any American who’s convinced the country is in fast decline needs to watch “The Sweet Spot,” a new video series of baseball stories. Through the wandering, ever-curious lens of Jon Leonoudakis’s high-definition camera, the glorious beauty of the American experiment is made clear in rich Technicolor images of ball fields, baseball uniforms, bobblehead dolls, and the best and brightest figures of the Grand Old Game. A fascinating treasury of stories from and about players, coaches, fans, artists, teams, and the myriad crewmembers that support the game, “The Sweet Spot” is a must-see not just for baseball fans, but for anyone needing a reminder of the true greatness of our shared American culture.”

–Michael Fallon, author, “Dodgerland: Decadent Los Angeles and the 1977-78 Dodgers”
