Lecture: Spaceman: A Baseball Odyssey | Ridgefield, CT

Date/Time

Feb 21, 2014
07:30 PM

Description

Spaceman: A Baseball Odyssey Friday, 2/21 - 7:30pm. Q&A with Bill Lee - former Boston Red Sox Pitcher.

The Ridgefield Playhouse Film Society "Documentary Film Series" Underwritten by Cohen and Wolf & The Ridgefield Press. Two audience members will win an autographed wooden bat or a baseball signed by Bill Lee! Spaceman: A Baseball Odyssey is a documentary about former Boston Red Sox and Montreal Expo star pitcher, Bill "The Spaceman" Lee. Throughout the 1970’s, Bill Lee was a brilliant left handed pitcher who defied every manager or front office executive who tried to control him. Produced and directed by Brett Rapkin, the documentary portrays Bill Lee as the ultimate gonzo player. For 14 years as a pitcher (1969-1982), ten with Boston and four with Montreal, he was anything but a conventional major league ballplayer. His career record included three consecutive 17-win seasons with the Red Sox (1973-1975) and a 16-win season with the Montreal Expos in 1979. He was selected to the American League All-Star squad in 1973 and pitched in the World Series in 1975 against the Cincinnati Reds. Exiled from professional baseball in 1983, Bill Lee began to roam the world in search of opportunities to play the sport he loves. Lee's adventures have taken him across the United States to China, Russia, South America, and every province in Canada. Along for the ride, Spaceman: A Baseball Odyssey captures the essence of Bill Lee's vagabond lifestyle. During the journey, we see photos and footage from Lee's eccentric past and hear from former teammates, family members, sportswriters, fans, and Lee himself about the long, strange trip that has spawned the legend of the “Spaceman.”
