"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?

(EDIT: Found lots of online info right here!)

Two things:

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! :)

Well, ESPN is reporting that he has signed, so let this please be the last semi-controversy to come out of Boston until the All-Star Break at least. An interesting Rickey Henderson side note that Jim Caple pointed out in his latest column at
