'A Player To Be Named Later' is a defining film on the uncertain daily life of Triple-A baseball, capturing the 2001 season of the Indianapolis Indians 145 games in 150 days. Going up and down through the ranks is a way of life for the players as they chase their dreams. But its also a way of life for their families, who chase them as they move about from one game to another, from one team to another, all around the country hoping for a call-up to the major leagues. Families have other challenges, too, like making ends meet on a paltry minor league salary.
In this 85-minute documentary, viewers meet four players: Marco Scutaro, a young Venezuelan player (in 2010, Scutaro is with the Boston Red Sox); Kyle Peterson, a pitcher and former first-round draft pick who has missed the previous season following shoulder surgery; Micah Franklin, a once highly-sought prospect who has spent the last two years playing in Japan; and Brad Tyler, a 32-year-old veteran who has never made it to the majors.
Along the way, colorful side characters emerge, such as Miss Jackie, the Indians #1 fan for the past 40 years, and pitcher Allen Meat Levrault. Also featured are the coaches, team owner, radio announcers, manager, and others who work to bring baseball to the fans.
In 'A Player To Be Named Later,' baseball becomes the symbolic stage for the struggle between chasing the American Dream and the realities of everyday life. In cities and towns across America, fans cheer their minor league baseball players, who have just a 6% chance of making it to the majors, as they shuffle among the 7 farm teams that are associated with each major league team.
