I have a grandiose goal to add to my bucket list Jim. I'd like to see a sanctioned baseball game at least at the college level (since a few states lack a minor league team) or above in all 50 US states.

Yeah, I liked Sugar a lot. Was about to rent it and then I saw that my son already owned it. The list is getting challenging. Aside from the movies, I don't have many "easy" ones left.

Comment by Jim Wood (138)(46 MLB) on March 28, 2013 at 9:33am
Great stuff! BTW Sugar is a fantastic movie and I love referring that to anyone.

Good luck on the list- looks like we have plenty done but some fun ones to go!
Comment by Bart Wilhelm (311 total/41 MLB) on March 28, 2013 at 9:29am

I've been working on the book for about 2 years so I had a head start. And the movies are all on my netflix queue so I'll get to them eventually :) My girlfriend's sister lives in Raleigh so we WILL get out there eventually to see them. I'll let you know.

Comment by Jim Wood (138)(46 MLB) on March 28, 2013 at 9:11am
Wow your list trumped mine big time!!! I have some of those movies if you ever want them, and let me know if you're ever in Durham (live nearby- we'll catch a Bulls game)!
