The First Padres Documentary Now Streaming.
For those of you who follow 90 Feet of Perfection, you’re likely aware that I’m a fan of the old Pacific Coast League and West Coast baseball as a whole. With that said, I was delighted when I discovered “The First Padres,” a documentary film on the San Diego Padres of the old Pacific Coast League. In fact, I was so excited about the film that I sought out the filmmaker who made the movie and interviewed him here on the blog.
For those of you who have not purchased or viewed the award winning film, it was announced today that The First Padres is currently being streamed for free on KPBS San Diego. I suggest watching it, as there are interviews with many Pacific Coast League players of yesteryear; such as baseball Hall of Famer, Bobby Doerr. Also, there’s a great deal information on Ted Williams; which is an obvious perk for any baseball history fan. While this film is right up my alley, I think it’s an amazing film across the board and anyone who loves the history of the game is sure to appreciate it. If you have some extra time, head on over to The First Padres on KPBS and give it a viewing. You won’t be disappointed.
