In the 1970s, Red Sox pitcher Bill Lee aka, "Spaceman" became a folk hero to the Fenway faithful. He lived in a world like no other; where competitive fire, Tibetan Buddhism, slapstick comedy, social activism, and counter-cultural medication co-existed in relative harmony. He baffled opposing hitters and management alike with a variety of pitches and verbal aerobatics. As a pioneer in the baseball labor movement, he beanballed corporate duplicity and worked to end the era of indentured servitude in baseball. Was he blackballed from the game as a result? Bill Spaceman Lee: High & Outside is a new documentary film on the life of the controversial Spaceman, the last true rebel hero in Major League Baseball. He was the right man for his times. He is the right man for our times.
