"America may have some problems, but it's our home. Our team. And if you don't wanna root for your team...then you should get the hell out of the stadium. Go America."--Stan Marsh, South Park

They're looking for extras this week (week of June 2) at Miller Park in Milwaukee, WI. Interviews are Monday and Tuesday, 2p-7p, at Miller Park's "Hot Corner." Actual on-field tryouts are Wednesday through Friday.
Apparently, the producers are looking for folks with baseball experience to play the Milwaukee Brewers and their opponents, as well as bench players and coaches.
If you haven't heard, Bernie Mac is making a movie where he plays a Brewers great (contradiction, I know) who retires after joining the 3,000-hit club...only to find out the stats are wrong, and he's only got 2,997; so he un-retires to legit make the 3,000-hit club.
It'd be the first baseball movie to involve Milwaukee since Major League. The first one was filmed in the late County Stadium (the second in the White Sox's new Comiskey.)
Having managed for four years in high school, I'm seriously considering the 2 1/2 hour (each way) drive to go for that bench extra slot. Thoughts?
One, most of Major League 2 was filmed at Camden Yards; the rest at Memorial Stadium across town.
Two, what they don't tell you is that if you look competent you might get to play for the Brewers! :)
"You will never get that TV show. You'll never, ever get the Republican TV show. The Writers Guild of America, my union, is at a minimum, 99 percent leftist liberal and, like me, socialist. And we don't know how to write it. We don't." - Lawrence O'Donnell, former Capitol Hill aide; co-producer/executive story editor/writer for "The West Wing"; and, creator/Executive Producer of "Mister Sterling" on why Republicans and conservatives are "practically invisible" on TV during CNN's "Relibable Sources", 3/25.
Three months ago I would have salivated at this opportunity, but now that my new car gets Radio 720 WGN in so well and I can hear the Pat and Ron Show (Cardinal Nation is drawing up my excommunication papers as we speak)
